ExVis is the product of a collaboration between visualization specialists and aeroscientists at NASA Ames investigating how information technology can be applied to improve the aeronautical design process. ExVis is a useful software tool for interactive visualization of wind tunnel experiment data. The development of exVis was also used to support other goals, including building trust and confidence in a new collaboration, plus exposing requirements for an infrastructure of reusable software libraries appropriate for rapid prototyping of visualization tools and testing of visualization research ideas. The breadth of applicability of exVis arose as a design goal in response to a rapidly increasing list of data acquisition technologies being tested in laboratories and wind tunnels. This feature is demonstrated through several examples.
