What is SCEC-VDO?

Researchers and interns at the Southern California Earthquake Center (SCEC) have built a seismic data visualization software tool called the SCEC Virtual Display of Objects (SCEC-VDO). Written in Java with the Swing GUI toolkit to create interactive menus and the Visualization Toolkit (VTK) to render 3D content, SCEC-VDO allows for the visualization of 3D earthquake and fault objects on maps and the creation of images and movies for analysis, presentation, and publication.
