Section 18: Scientific Visualization. Publication of this NSF report prompted researchers to investigate new approaches to the visualization process and also spawned the development of integrated software environments for visualization.

Section 18: Scientific Visualization

Besides several systems that only addressed specific application needs, such as computational fluid dynamics or chemical engineering, a few more general systems evolved. Among these were IBM's Data Explorer, Ohio State University's apE, Wavefront's Advanced Visualizer, SGI's IRIS Explorer, Stardent's AVS and Wavefront's Data Visualizer.Two lesser known but important systems were Khoros (from the University of New Mexico) and PV-WAVE (Precision Visuals' Workstation Analysis and Visualization Environment), originally from Precision Visuals, Inc., but now owned by Visual Numerics, Inc.

‎ User-driven visual mashups in interactive public spaces. Searching and presenting rich data using mobile devices is hard given their inherent I/O limitations.

User-driven visual mashups in interactive public spaces

One approach for alleviating these limitations is device symbiosis, whereby the interaction with one's personal mobile device is augmented by additionally engaging with more capable infrastructure devices, such as kiosks and displays. The Celadon framework, previously developed by our team, builds upon device symbiosis for delivering zone-based services through mobile and infrastructure devices in public spaces such as shopping malls, train stations and theme parks.

Visualizing the impact a simple cup can have on our environment According to, over 6.5 million trees are consumed each year to produce the 16 billion disposable coffee cups that are being thrown away out into landfills.

For about every 50,000 paper coffee cups produced, a tree is destroyed. DESCRIPTIONA Simple Cup visualizes the impact disposable coffee cups have on our environment by simulating a real-time growing forest on a web site every time a mug of coffee is placed onto a networked coffee cup coaster. The interactive visualization encourages coffee drinkers to drink out of their coffee mugs by rewarding them with saved trees and energy onto a virtual ecosystem (that may be accessed globally online) every time they don’t drink out of disposable paper cups when they have a cup of coffee.

The objective of A Simple Cup is to raise awareness over the impact disposable coffee cup production has on our environment’s natural resources. StAllio! mp3s. Martin Wattenberg: Art.
