We are living in the era of big and complex data. Governments, businesses, and institutions heavily rely on this data to understand phenomena, predict future trends, solve problems, and make informed decisions. Currently, flat 2D screens are used to visualise data, offering only limited ways to interact with, and visually explore the data. This hinders our ability to fully understand the data and make informed decisions. Immersive Analytics is a recently emerged research area that aims to explore the use of Virtual and Augmented Reality to better support data exploration and understanding. These immersive technologies allow for so-called Embodied Interaction, which breaks the barrier of the 2D screen. Embodiment enables the direct interaction with data in 3D immersive spaces using natural, physical movements. It allows for novel and engaging ways to support computing, data understanding and decision making.
