Avizo licensed for multidisciplinary 3D imaging class
Visualization Sciences Group (VSG) has signed an agreement with Louisiana State University in the US for the licensing of Avizo 3D analysis software through LSU’s Information Technology Services Department for use in its honours multidisciplinary 3D imaging class. This agreement supports LSU’s strategy of teaching science with visualisation software and providing students with the means to solve complex scientific problems using 3D imaging and data visualisation. Under the agreement, the entire Avizo software portfolio – with heavy emphasis on its Fire edition – will be made available to students and professors of the multidisciplinary 3D imaging class through a token-based licensing model.
‘The 3D imaging class project at LSU had been seeking technology to provide an exceptional classroom and lab experience, providing the potential for deeper studies using our Matlab codes,’ said Les Butler, professor at the Department of Chemistry at LSU, and one of the instructors at the 3D imaging class project. ‘Our trial program with Avizo was conducted during the 2010-2011 academic year and LSU is excited to expand this program that has led to innovation in the classroom and offers better collaboration between professors and students.'
