N3DV is a software designed for visualizing and understanding experimental earthquake data. It provides a 3D view with 3D objects representing the various structures and instruments within the experiment. It also allows users to access VCR-like controls to play back the experiment events and to see how the structures or instruments react to various forces acted upon them. It also allows the user to view the experiment in a semi-immersive virtual reality environment such as a GeoWall. The user also has the option of deciding how the experiment looks in 3D, and how individual sensors or instruments visually respond to their recorded values. The user may also choose areas of interest to view, show and hide sensors, and draw curves between sensors to help show shockwave propagation.
