Spatial@ucsb.local13 Poster & Plenary Sessions

Spatial data come in many forms—from geo-referenced coordinates and areal units on a map to diagrams and the coding of sound with musical notation. The sources of such data include, among many others, human creativity, the Census, trajectories of movements from GPS, and the social networks represented by online contacts. Problem solving in the science, business, and design disciplines, and aesthetic renderings in the arts increasingly make use of spatial visualization technologies to represent and interpret the patterns and processes that define natural and human worlds at scales ranging from the molecular to the astronomical.  spatial@ucsb.local2013 brings together leading contributors to the art and science of visualization for demonstrations of applications and discussion. The Visualization of Spatial Data Plenary Session will feature presentations by Jason Dykes (School of Informatics, City University London), JoAnn Kuchera-Morin (Media Arts and Technology Program, UCSB), and Ross Whitaker  (Scientific Computing and Imaging Institute (SCI), University of Utah).

On Thursday, June 6, 2013, spatial@ucsb.local2013 will host a Poster Session and Plenary Session on this theme. The event will be held at Corwin Pavilion. Posters can be viewed from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.; the Plenary Session will be from 1:00 to 3:30 p.m. If you plan to attend, please RSVP to Karen Doehner, kdoehner@spatial.ucsb.edu.
