On October 1, Chancellor Holden Thorpe of UNC Chapel Hill and Chancellor Phil Dubois of UNC Charlotte visited the Charlotte Visualization Center. They visited the Renaissance Situation Room, which is part of the VisCenter and a new facility of RENCI@UNC Charlotte (administered under the auspices of the UNC Charlotte Urban Institute in collaboration with the VisCenter and CAGIS), to view presentations and demos about collaborative RENCI projects in urban modeling and analysis. Prominent among these projects are visual analytics applications and novel display and interaction methods. The Chancellors came away impressed with all they saw and with the collaborations underway not only at UNC Charlotte but between the Charlotte and Chapel Hill campuses.
