Environmental scientists, land managers, and policy actors are increasingly presented with high-stakes high-uncertainty problems stemming from human-ecosystem interactions. To address these problems, scientists and managers frequently use models that produce enormous geospatial and temporal datasets that are constantly modified. To help make sense of this complex and changing data, we ...

In this paper, we present design principles for cutaway visualizations that emphasize shape and depth communication of the focus features and their relation to the context. First, to eliminate cutaway-flatness we argue that the cutaway axis should have an angular offset from the view direction. Second, we recommend creating a ...

We employed genetic algorithms to investigate the relationship between stream topographies and their associated hyporheic residence time distributions. A hyporheic residence time is the time it takes a water particle to enter the sediments below a stream, travel through the sediment, and re-enter the surface water of the stream. This ...

Augmented Reality (AR) location-based learning activities are argued to promote students' immersion and facilitate learning. However, little is known about the factors that may affect immersion, as well as about the design of immersive location-based AR activities which can successfully promote students' learning. To address this research gap, we report ...
