KAUST's Core Laboratories and Major Facilities directly support the research mission of the University by providing state-of-the-art research facilities, training and expert services to the KAUST research community. With more than 135 staff scientists, engineers, specialists, technicians and administrators, the Core Labs function as a shared-user facility and play a key role in encouraging interdisciplinary collaboration through ease of access to major equipment and a consistent mode of operation.
The Visualization Core Lab provides KAUST’s academic community with advanced visualization development and showcase units, such as tiled display walls and virtual reality environments (NexCave, CORNEA). VCC uses these facilities to showcase some of their most recent research, such as 3D reconstruction of large pieces of land acquired during missions using cameras mounted to UAVs, or visualization of large scientific data that benefits of the additional real-estate that tiled display walls offer.
