  • SIGGRAPH 1998

    Mike Botts is a Principal Research Scientist in the Earth System Science Laboratory at the University of Alabama in Huntsville. In 1992 he served on temporary asignment at NASA Headquarters to evaluate the state of scientific visualization for NASA’s EOS Mission. Botts’ report entitled The State of Scientific Visualization with Regard to the NASA EOS Mission to Planet Earth, established many of the guidelines for visualization requirements for NASA EOS. He is presently Principal Investigator on several research and development grants for NASA, EPA, and NRL-Monterey involving the challenge of interactive visual integration of multisource data sets which are disparate with regard to native spatial and temporal domains. These efforts all involve development of cross platform and web based applications, using a combination of Java, C++, Open-GL, and VRML. Dr. Botts is also currently looking into new Web based methods for describing spatial and temporal domains of data and is chair of the international CEOS Task Team for Global Mapping.

    Mike Botts is a Senior Research Scientist in the Earth System Science Laboratory at the University of Alabama in Huntsville. In 1992, he served on temporary assignment, at NASA Headquarters, to evaluate the state of scientific visualization for NASA’s EOS Mission. Botts’ report, entitled “The State of Scientific Visualization with Regard to the NASA EOS Mission to Planet Earth”, established many of the guidelines for visualization requirements for NASA EOS. He is presently Principal Investigator on an EOS/Pathfinder grant (The Interuse Experiment) and is responsible for directing the interuse activities of three teams of developers at the University of Alabama in Huntsville and NASA/JPL. Botts’ is also Co-Investigator on a grant to extend the JPL LinkWinds visualization package to meet the demands of EOS, particularly with regard to geolocation of data and comparative analysis of disparate data.
