SOS Week with WorldProcessor

Advanced Visualization Lab, Visualization and Analytics, UITS Research Technologies 

IU’s Advanced Visualization Lab hosted a week of activities centered around the new Science on a Sphere display. 

These activities offered the IU community as well as the general public the chance to see the new spherical display, interact with hundreds of available datasets, learn from experts, dialog about new potential uses, and even create their own datasets.

SOS is a six-foot sphere illuminated by high-definition projectors and capable of displaying a wide range of data, including oceanographic, atmospheric, astronomical, political, and economic data. IU’s SOS is installed in the atrium of the Cyberinfrastructure Building (CIB) and is now available for demonstrations and use by IU faculty, students, and staff. The event took place Sep 16-20, 2013 and featured presentations, demonstrations, and interactive sessions with local experts as well as internationally renowned journalist and artist Ingo Gunther. Mr. Gunther temporarily installed his WorldProcessor exhibit to provide additional background and inspiration for new ways to interact with and create spherical visualizations.
