Species Loss in Thoreau's Woods
We present a case study of an interactive, multiple heterogeneous-display, multi-touch visualization for informal science education. Our visual simulation application, called WALDEN, has been developed using a Microsoft Surface and a large data wall. Multiple displays offer users the opportunity to interact with large visual datasets and observe complex visual simulations. We discuss the design of our system, findings from our case study, the shortcomings it revealed and how we plan to address them.
