  The CLS Orbit Correction (OC) system acquires, collates, and publishes storage ring beam centroid position information from 48 beam position monitors (BPMs) at a rate of 1000 samples per second. We present a "Storage Ring Beam Position Visualization Tool" that computes and displays dynamic Fast Fourier Transforms (FFTs) and Cumulative Power Spectral Densities (CPSDs) for all BPMs in real-time using full resolution data. The computed FFTs and CPSDs can be plotted in various combinations and in waterfall plots that allow visualization of changes over long periods of time. In addition, correlations between all BPM channel combinations are computed and ranked. Data from any two BPM channels can be selected for plotting in two dimensions wherein correlations are visually apparent. Computed CPSDs are further binned and published in scalar EPICS PVs which are archived for further analysis. Preliminary results from the Beam Position Visualization Tool have proven useful in characterizing beam position noise at the CLS.
