About CVDI

Established in  2012, the Center for Visual and Decision Informatics (CVDI) is a National Science Foundation (NSF) Industry University Cooperative Research Center that works in partnership with government, industry, and academia to develop the next-generation visual and decision support tools and techniques that enable decision-makers to significantly improve the way their organization’s information is organized and interpreted.
