1999 Projects:
Information management and archiving

ROV data visualization

Project lead: Michael McCann
Project manager: Rich Schramm
Project team: James Barry, Don Brutzman (Naval Postgraduate School), T. Craig Dawe, Gerry Hatcher, Jennifer B. Paduan, and Bruce Robison

MBARI excels in measuring and observing oceanographic phenomena. However, the scientific benefits derived from the collected data could be significantly enhanced by more intensive analysis and integrated visualization. This project aims to synthesize the various data sets collected by institute researchers for visualization in a compelling, efficient, and user-friendly system. We will develop computational tools to routinely create richly detailed, three-dimensional objects and imagery that can be viewed within a web browser.

Next: Molecular and microbiology data management
