Compute Canada has launched an exciting new Visualization Challenge - Visualize This!
Participants will visualize an Earth Sciences dataset covering the world's oceans. The dataset will be available for download from October 1-31, with submissions due by midnight Eastern time on October 31.
Participants from all science fields are encouraged to enter. Submissions will be reviewed by the Compute Canada visualization team. Additional points will be given for: interactive visualizations; animations; visualizing the 3D nature of the data; online presentation; and clear innovative display of multiple variables.
Prizes include high-capacity SSD drives or up to $1,000 towards registration and travel to HPCS 2017, Canada's premier Advanced Research Computing (ARC) conference, at Queen's University in Kingston, ON (June 5-9, 2017). The top visualizations will also be showcased on the Compute Canada website and in Compute Canada's booth at Supercomputing 2016 in Salt Lake City in November.
