NSF Science and Engineering Visualization Challenge

NASA Sea Surface Temperature in Google EarthThe National Science Foundation is soliciting entries for its Science and Engineering Visualization Challenge. The Journal Science is also involved with organizing and selecting the winners of the Challenge. The intent is to highlight the best use of visual presentations to highlight science and engineering projects or concepts. “The winners will be published in a special section of the Sept. 28, 2007 issue of the journal Science and Science Online and on the NSF Web site. ”
Google Earth enables some pretty impressive scientific visualizations. See just a sample from the GEB science category. I hope scientists using Google Earth for visualizations will consider entering the contest.
