Undergraduate Research at the Vis Center

Week One (Vis U)


We have officially started the “vis u” program. I am from Kentucky, but I find it very interesting to meet people from different parts of the world .The students from the University of Puerto Rico (UPR) have a different background in computer science. The field of Computer Science is expanding in many directions, so it will be helpful to have many different approaches to use in our project.


The project that I am working on is called ” Info Forest “. The end goal of this project is visualization of ancient manuscripts on many devices. The Center for Visualization has more data then most mobile devices could save, so to view all the data a web component is needed. This project will have many challenges to it, but with Eric, Bonnie, Becky, and Krystel we have a good possibility of completing the project.
