The mission of Decision Theater North is to provide a cutting-edge immersive visual experience to facilitate conversations and decision-making by communities, agencies, industry and academia.

Decision theaters” use interactive, high-resolution visual environments to enable discussions and decisions by policymakers, researchers, and industry leaders. The growing need for these theaters stems from: advances in visualization technology; data sets of unprecedented size; the increasing need for team approaches to complex research and policy questions; and a growing acknowledgement of the importance of visual stimuli to fully engage the decision-making capacity of the human brain. The goal of a decision theater is to display the dynamics of a problem, and the effects of policy options, in a clear and compelling manner – thus helping experts to develop the best approaches and solutions.
