Geowall and Citycluster Visualizations
September 10, 2003
/Mike Liebhold

Wiggleview, a seismic earth visualization is a recent demonstration application running on the  Geowall, a low-cost visualization system under development by a consortium of institutions including the new
Visualization Center at Scripps Institue of Oceanography at the University of California, San Diego and a co-development with the Agave  (Access Grid Augmented Virtual Environment) project at EVL ( Electronic Visualization Labratory) at the University of Illinois,Chicago.

Geowall is
based  predominantly on freeware or shareware software running on a desktop PC (running Mac, Linux, or Windows flavor operating system) with a fast graphics card, two digital projectors, and a projector screen. The dual projectors superimpose an image on top of one another creating a passive stereo (or 3D) image, which can be observed by wearing cheap 3D stereo glasses. You can sign up for GeoWall mailing lists here

CityCluster, another EVL project, is
a larger scale virtual reality and high-speed networking project that juxtaposes the Renaissance and the emerging Gigabits Networking Age, represented metaphorically by Florence and Chicago  CityCluster is currently on view at the Ars Electronica Festival, AEC Museum of the Future, Linz, Austria, September 6-11, 2003

"The installation is projected to host interactive teams, which can experience a shared environment in local and as well in remote locations through networking. One of the major goals is to allow remote interactions between visitors and to focus on collaborative VR, with high performance and to give emphasis to enable teams to participate in distant locations: to share, interact, navigate, work or just have fun and share experiences as if they were in a common, virtual space."

Larry Smarr is the link between these projects. Formerly the Director of  NCSA (National Center of Super Computer Applications, at the University of Illinois - home of the original Mosaic web browser), Larry Smarr is now the Director of the new Cal (IT)2
  - the California Institute for Telecommunications and Information Technology at UC San Diego, leading among other things, a fair number of geospatial network projects with Scripps.
