University of Alaska Fairbanks’ Matt Nolan announces the First Annual Virtual Globes Scientific Users Conference, to be held in Boulder, Colorado on 10-12 July 2006. Why?
[Virtual Globes] are quickly becoming the new paradigm in earth science, earth science education and outreach, earth science logistics, and earth science data access. This conference is interested addressing questions such as: How are these tools currently being used in earth sciences? How do they work? How have they changed earth sciences? What needs of earth sciences are currently not being met by the existing tools? What should we expect for the future and what role should we play in it?
