Bryan Kennedy, Director of Museum Technology and Digital Operations at the Science Museum of Minnesota, describes xMacroscope, a collaboration between several museums and computer science teams. He described the constraints for data visualization comprehension in museum settings and how the project is both designing and developing technology platforms and exhibits and conducting learning research to understand and improve how the public understands and engages with data visualization.
This talk was part of the Visualization for Informal Science Education conference held at the Exploratorium, which explored themes of interpretation, narration, broadening participation, applying research to practice, collaboration, and the affordances of technology.
