Science on a Sphere: It’s not your grandfather’s globe

It used to be a globe was a globe: Static and dusty, it sat on your desk, in the library, or in the classroom. You could find countries and oceans on it, but not much else.

Science on a Sphere (SOS) is a whole new kind of globe. Suspended above the lobby of the Cyberinfrastructure Building at IU Bloomington, SOS gives researchers a new tool to visualize their data on a global scale. If you have data you’d like to see up on the big globe, or artwork you’d like to display on a sphere, Science on a Sphere is for you.

To use the sphere or view a demonstration, contact vishelp@iu.edu.
