National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Senior Program Manager Carrie McDougall discusses Science On a Sphere (SOS), a visualization technology developed at NOAA that projects dynamic and massive data sets on a large spherical display. Installed in 150 different locations, primarily museums and other informal science institutions, SOS provides public audience access to spherically rendered depictions of ocean, weather, and climate data.
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.
VISUALISE was made possible thanks to generous support from the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation and the National Science Foundation under Grant No. 1811163.
