Theme: Geographic Information Systems and Childhood Obesity

submitted by: blytton
There is no single solution to the childhood obesity epidemic, but there is a need for transdisciplinary collaboration and approaches that consider the potential mechanisms that promote or reduce obesity at all levels of enquiry, from cells to society. In this theme issue of the American Journal of Preventive Medicine, we focus on place (obesogenic and leptogenic environments), specifically the use of GIS, related technologies, and spatial analytical methods in the study of childhood...

'GlyphSea': A New Way to Visualize Vector Data

submitted by: btolo

Researchers at the San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) and other organizations within the University of California, San Diego, have developed a novel way to encode and display vector data that clearly shows magnitude and direction. This new visualization technique may help seismologists to accurately analyze ground movements for an earthquake, measure magnetic turbulence in deep space, or allow medical researchers to study areas such as blood flow and nutrient absorption.

submitted by: apryl
Located on the northwest end of the University of California, San Diego is the San Diego Supercomputer Center. Home to what National Science Director Arden L Bement calls “the engine for change for the next scientific revolution,” that engine is Cyberinfrastructure. Just like the coordinated infrastructure that we depend on for our power and transportation, Cyberinfrastructure, or CI, is an organized aggregate of information technologies that include computers, software, networks, data...
