In this presentation we will describe how 3D graphics are changing how we see and interact with the world. Using three real world examples we will demonstrate value driven innovation that is fundamentally changing the workflows of some of the largest industries in the world, most notably Aerospace & Defense and Energy. Whether it is tracking battle damage on a stealth jet fighter or identifying where to drill for Oil on Barrow Island Big Data accelerates decisions by interacting with data in 3D. If a picture is worth a thousand words than what is an interactive 3D visualization worth?
