Data Visualization Summer Internship Program Final Presentations

Thursday, August 4, 2016
3:30pm to 5:00pm
Add to Cal

Please join us for the culmination of this unique summer experience, a collaborative project between Caltech, JPL, and Art Center College of Design. The intensive 10-week summer R+D internship program brings together faculty and researchers from Caltech, JPL and Art Center to develop custom-built interactive data visualization tools for current science and engineering research at Caltech and JPL.


Spacecraft Trajectory Design Tool
PIs: Jeffrey Stuart & Sott Evans, JPL Mission Design Navigation Group |MD Nav
Problem: How might high-dimensional trajectory design problems be made more tractable?
Solution: Our visual tool offers intuitive interaction with 3D and 2D representations of trajectories with quantitative data query options.

Glacier Ice Flow
PI: Mark Simons, Caltech Geophysics, SeismoLab
Problem: How can the movement of ocean tides and inland Antarctic ice streams over varying timescales be accurately represented visually?
Solution: Our tool generates a unified visualization of velocity in space and time and supports exploration of quantitative data.

PI: Mitch Guttman, Caltech Biology
Problem: How can the 3D structure of DNA be better represented support exploration of new relationships to its other functions?
Solution: Visualizing the genome in 2D and 3D our interactive platform allows users to select and compare structures of interest at varying resolutions.
