In the domain of large-scale visualization instruments, Hybrid Reality Environments (HREs) are a recent innovation that combines immersive environments, with the best-in-class capabilities of Ultra-high-resolution display walls. In this paper we present Omegalib, a software framework that facilitates application development on HREs. Omegalib is supports dynamic reconfigurability of the display environment: areas of the display can be interactively allocated to 2D or 3D workspaces as needed. We present examples of applications developed with Omegalib for the CAVE2?ᆬᄁ system, and show how a Hybrid Reality Environment proved effective in supporting a co-located research group in the Environmental Sciences.
