This paper discusses the extent of virtual reality technology and raises an example of using a highly immersive environment for exploring and mining multivariate spatial data. The environment used for analysis is a 4 wall projection system called the C2 at Iowa State University. We look at water chemistry measurements made on a probability sample of wadeable streams in the mid-Atlantic states of the USA.
