Earth Science research and education increasingly demand the integration of geospatial datasets to observe and model natural phenomena. To better understand these datasets advanced visualization techniques and technologies are necessary.


To meet this challenge, Harvard University, The Department of Earth & Planetary Sciences and the Structural Geology & Earth Resources Group have created The Visualization Research & Teaching Laboratory. (follow this link)


We are also supporting other research groups across a range of Faculty of Arts & Sciences programs and departments.


The primary facility for the Viz Lab is the Ultra High Resolution Science Observatory located in room 220. Supporting this facility are the primary machine room GEO 218 and the research and support lab GEO 216.
