The Geosciences Probe of Discovery (GEOpod) is an intuitive,
interactive application that allows users to navigate through
and explore an immersive 3-D environment created from authentic
geoscience data. GEOpod is built on top of Unidata's Integrated
Data Viewer (IDV), leveraging its sophisticated features to
import and display geoscience data in a teaching environment.
UPDATE: The GEOpod short course will not be held at the Austin AMS meering.
The organizers hope to present the course in a different venue in the near future.
GEOpod was created by professors and students from the
departments of Computer Science and Earth Sciences at
Millersville University. They, along with Unidata Program
Center IDV developer Yuan Ho, will be teaching a Short
Course — Interactive Immersion Learning: Flying
through data onboard the GEOpod —
at the upcoming American Meteorological Society
annual meeting in Austin, Texas.
