Author:Paul Morin, Peter van Keken, and Jason Leigh
Description: The consortium aims to broaden the use of scientific visualization tools for Earth science research and education by the use of low cost virtual reality visualization devices, arguing that "A combination of new projection technology, fast graphics cards and inexpensive computers have made it possible to provide a stereo projection system that is much more affordable than previous commercial solutions. The GeoWall project makes use of these projection systems to visualize structure and dynamics of the Earth in stereo to aid the understanding of spatial relationships." With links to data directories, stereo images and other GeoWall applications; curricula; papers and talks; mailing lists; and more. The GeoWall Consortium receives funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF). Also available in Portuguese.
