The Center for Transportation Analysis brings complex data sets to life in the Transportation Analysis and Visualization Laboratory (TRAVL), a state-of-the-art, 32-seat facility designed to showcase ORNL-developed transportation modeling and simulation tools. With enough processing power for 15 high-definition 3D graphics panels, TRAVL is a signature asset for CTA's contemporary research activities in transportation data visual analytics. It facilitates researchers' requirements to present the most advanced real-time simulation modeling collaborations and visual sharing of data displayed as topographical maps, 3D drawings, and high-definition video. TRAVL excels at illustrating vision-based solutions for challenges CTA is working to solve.
