ED037:
Sympathy for the Data: Novel approaches and advances in the art of data visualization


Possible Alternate Format: If this session is allocated an oral session, the convener can choose to have lightning style presentations that are quicker and more focused than a traditional session. Learn more


Session ID#: 26885

Session Description:
Representing data in a clear, concise and attractive manner is the primary tool scientists use to communicate their research at all levels. Insights into complex systems within Earth and planetary sciences often arise through the integration of highly varied, multidimensional, and ever-growing datasets. Advancement in the immersive technologies of virtual and augmented reality provide an accessible and exciting way to communicate complex data sets. Clear, interactive and intuitive visualization software and pedagogy aids scientists in sharing innovative research with their peers and the general public. We invite proposals that concentrate on data visualization within a breadth of subject areas and techniques, and ideally address inter-disciplinary potential with a particular emphasis on virtual and augmented reality. Although the primary focus of presentation is through using visual aids, alternative approaches (e.g. the use of sounds) in communicating data are encouraged.
