Integrated Computer Augmented Virtual Environment (I-CAVE) is an instructional and research visualization facility located on FIU’s Modesto Maidique Campus. This facility can be used for both undergraduate and graduate instruction in a variety of fields across the natural and social sciences, humanities and professional programs.
The I-CAVE provides new opportunities for students and faculty for research, creative projects, learning exploration and data visualization. The benefit for users is tremendous as this virtual environment provides for 2-D and 3-D visualizations of scalable data, a completely immersive experience of a virtual space, and the capacity to explore new ideas, places or objects in a dynamic and interactive visual environment.
I-CAVE, the outcome of a joint collaboration between the College of Architecture and the Arts and the College of Engineering and Computing. The project has been funded by FIU’s Technology Fee Funds and is officially in operation on February 1st of 2016.
