Tiled displays are an emerging technology for constructing high-resolution semi-immersive visualization environments capable of presenting high-resolution images from scientific simulation. In this way, they complement other technologies such as the CAVE or ImmersaDesk, which by design give up pure resolution in favor of width of view and stereo. However, the largest impact may well be in using large-format tiled displays as one of possibly multiple displays in building \"information\" or \"active\" spaces that surround the user with diverse ways of interacting with data and multimedia information flows. These environments may prove to be the ultimate successor of the desktop metaphor for information technology work.
