is a fundamental tool that provides new opportunities for data comprehension and exploration through its visualization and quantification tools.
As a result of data capture, vast amounts of data are produced which contain detailed information for research such as the North Sea Palaeolandscapes project. Avizo software enables visualization and analysis of entire landscapes, something which was previously impossible.
