Nicholas Del Rio, a Ph.D. student from Cyber-ShARE, is doing a summer internship at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, MD.

Nicholas will be integrating the Visualization Knowledge System (VisKo), a Cyber-ShARE research tool, into Goddard Earth Sciences Data and Information Services Center Interactive Online Visualization ANd aNalysis Infrastructure (Giovanni). Giovanni is a Web based application that provides a simple and intuitive way to visualize, analyze, and access vast amounts of Earth science remote sensing data without having to download the data. Prior to VisKo, Giovanni was responsible for both scientific processing and visualization generation. The goal of our collaboration is to have Giovanni delegate all visualization responsibilities to VisKo in hopes of creating a more agile system while providing users with a more diverse set of visualizations.
