20 CEOS11/17/ Background USGS Research Project: Information Technologies Research Project Lead Momentum from development of GeoWall Consortium Geo – Geology (Geography… Geometry… Geo…) Wall – One wall of a cave – descendent of CAVElib 3-D Viz on the cheap GeoWall Consortium - formulation without funding Jason Leigh University of Illinois – Chicago (UIC), Electronic Visualization Laboratory (EVL) – Cave Technology Peter van Keken, University of Michigan - Geology Paul Morin, U of Minnesota – Geology Visualization, Wall Evangelist Brian Davis, EROS – Data Pimp

21 CEOS11/17/ Number of GeoWalls – 12/ new systems a week (*Cost of a modest system) $15,000* $6,000*

22 CEOS11/17/ Cost of a Modest System

23 CEOS11/17/ GeoWall Index Approximate number of GeoWalls: 250 Number outside the US: ~30 Percentage in the classroom: ~75% Percentage of non-major earth science students that see a GeoWall in the US: 15-25% Average cost of one CAVE: $1.5 million Cost of the GeoWalls currently in educational service: $1.5 million Most popular material: USGSs Stereo LANDSAT Imagery Data transferred from GeoWall.org: 279 Gigabytes Busiest day on GeoWall.org: 300,000 hits in 8 hours on September 1, 2002 (Slashdot.org article) Publications beginning to appear (With respect to Harpers Index, as of 12/03)

26 CEOS11/17/ Development Direction Thus Far Hardware development Now stable and spun off to 4 companies Software development Seed applications freely distributed Encourage the support of GeoWall software by key vendors: ESRI ArcGIS, MDL Chime, DGI EarthVision, MMK Roma, IVS Fledermaus, VRCO VGEO, AGI Satellite Tool Kit Establishment of GeoWall community 4 th Annual GeoWall Meeting Spring – May 2004 Special interest groups being established Museum community underway

27 CEOS11/17/ GeoWall Museum Network Alaska:The Imaginarium, Anchorage. Illinois:SciTech Hands on Museum, Aurora; Discovery Center, Rockford; Lake County Discovery Museum, Wauconda; Lakeview Museum, Peoria. Indiana:Evansville Museum of Arts and Science, Evansville; Science Central, Fort Wayne; Childrens Science and Technology Museum, Terre Haute. Iowa:Bluedorn Science Imaginarium, Waterloo. Texas:Don Harrington Discovery Center, Amarillo Other Museums: Chicago Museum of Science and Industry Adler Planetarium, Chicago Science Museum of Minnesota Lowell Observatory Texas Memorial Museum - UT Austin

28 CEOS11/17/ Final Points GeoWall is now going beyond earth sciences Price cant get much lower Basic technology is ready Vendors are supporting the community Critical mass has been reached in the geosciences Assessment is just beginning Timing for feedback is excellent Opportunities for collaborative research
