Join us at Decision Theater North for the First Friday of May!
Come to Decision Theater North, UAF’s new immersive data visualization space, on May 5th for an exciting First Friday event! The theater will display the winners of “Visualize This,” a data visualization and design competition developed by the Alaska NSF EPSCoR, NIH INBRE and NIH BLaST programs. The winning entries include a variety of videos, still photos, infographics and more. Light snacks will be provided.
First Friday visitors will also be able to explore the Decision Theater development space, where UAF students are working with virtual reality and other cutting-edge technology to develop 360° videos and imagery and 3-D graphics and models. Activities will include 3-D painting in virtual reality using HTC Vive VR headsets and the Google Tilt Brush program. Also open for the event will be the computer lab of V-ADAPT (Volcanic Ash Detection, Avoidance and Preparedness for Transportation), a UAF-based start-up that tracks volcanic activity. Visitors can also peruse new satellite images from the Alaska Satellite Facility, on display on the floor above the Decision Theater.
