So far virtual worlds have been used mainly for architectural builds and interaction. The next obvious step is making them alive with data, streaming in data and representing it visually. Data visualization in Second Life is growing rapidly: open-source building-block tools are being made available to the community and developers and end-users are creating enterprise and science applications. There is a dataviz wiki and a „Data Visualization“ group in Second Life. This panel will provide a live demo of dataviz tools and discuss the challenges and techniques for bringing data into Second Life and turning it into useful representations.
