" Astronomical big data visualization and the future of the planetarium "

Mark Subbarao

(Adler Planetarium)

As datasets grow larger and more complex visualization will play an increasingly important in data exploration and discovery. This talk will give an overview of some of the critical software and hardware issues that need to be tackled in the big data era. I will discuss the state of the Worldwide Telescope which has recently been adopted by the American Astronomical Society. Finally I will describe the opportunity to transform the modern digital planetarium into a big data visualization facility, of use to researchers across disciplines.

Seminars are also held at JAC, CFHT, and IfA.
