CyberOutreach Team

CyberOutreach is the development and use of cyberinfrastructure to create high-end, high-fidelity, and high-resolution data-driven scientific visualizations.  These visualizations are technically developed and aesthetically designed to support scientific narratives.  The goal is to communicate, inspire, and outreach to large, non-expert audiences.

In the ‘making of’ these scientific productions for digital planetaria and NOVA programs, the team develops new cyber-technologies and advanced visualization tools and software pipelines.

Each of the team members play unique roles and contribute a variety of skills to the process and productions.  These expertises include advanced graphics and visualization software development, artistic design and choreography, multimedia production, data management and render wrangling.
