Epidemic Planet goes on the Sphere! May 26, 2011

The Epidemic Planet visualization of the 2009 H1N1 influenza pandemic evolution has been included among the scientific animations displayed on Science On a Sphere, a large visualization system that uses computers and video projectors to display dynamic data onto the outside of a sphere. The animation allows Science On a Sphere users to learn about the epidemic spreading on the global scale.

Science On a Sphere was initially developed as a way to explore environmental data using new visualization techniques and its is now used as unique and powerful teaching tool. Science On a Sphere is installed in more than 60 sites around the world, and the number is continuously increasing: the current list of installation locations can be found here.
