What is visualization of the real world? In our view, it means visualizing the environments around us, at scales we're accustomed to, sensing what we would normally sense. Unlike others in the field of visualization, we don't aim to provide X-ray vision, heat or airflow models, or small-scale measurements (such as the inspection of parts to the nearest micron or determination of molecular structures by x-ray crystallography). And neither do we aim for larger-than-life views, such as those presented by geographic information systems of our world or the models of worlds beyond provided by astrophysicists. Instead, we focus on what humans currently sense, at scales that we navigate daily, to record and share experiences
