Visible to the public Connecting Communities Through Data, Visualizations & Decisions Visualization for Terrestrial and Aquatic Systems (VISTAS)

The VISualization of Terrestrial and Aquatic Systems (VISTAS) team, an NSF/BIO/ABI-funded collaboration among environmental-, computer-, and social-scientists, has integrated new technologies and computer science research into terrain visualization software for environmental scientists. The system allows scientists to overlay 2D data


Visible to the public A Layered Framework of Sensors, Models, Land-Use Information and Citizens for Understanding Air Quality in Urban Environments

Explanation of Demonstration: We will demonstrate how our layered framework of sensors, models, land-use information and citizens can be used to understand community-scale differences in pollution levels. The demonstrations, in the form of videos, will illustrate, how local policies on fireworks can dramatically affect pollution levels and how such a framework can act as an early warning for smoke from a nearby wildfire.
