  Information - ESSI11 Visualisation Tools and Services

Event Information
The geosciences community has long benefited from access to powerful visualization tools and services. New tools and capabilities are continually emerging to depict, explore and understand complex, multidisciplinary, geo-referenced data, conduct sophisticated analyses and integration, and advance scientific discovery. In recent years, many GIS-enabled virtual globe tools and services (e.g., Arc-GIS, Google Earth, Microsoft Windows Live Virtual Earth, NASA World Wind) as well has three-dimensional visualisation tools (Unidata Integrated Data Viewer and GEON-IDV) have been enabled new capabilities for data exploration. The ever increasing volume and complexity of geophysical data also requires innovative strategies for visualisation, including faster, scalable, more efficient methodologies for data access and rendering. This session invites papers describing the development and use of visualisation tools in geosciences education and research.
