UIC African American Cultural Center Gallery

April 29 2014, the UIC Office of Sustainability celebrated the results of its “Proud to be Sustainable” Photo Contest at the UIC African American Cultural Center gallery. There were a total of 30 submissions that showcased sustainability efforts at UIC, and all were displayed in a slide show. The 12 winning posters hung on the gallery walls. The UIC Electronic Visualization Laboratory (EVL) was one of the winners, having submitted a photo showing a visualization of a 3D sonar mapping of the bathymetry of Lake Bonney, a perennially ice-covered Antarctic dry valley lake in the McMurdo Dry Valleys of Antarctica. It is being viewed by members of the NASA-funded ENDURANCE (Environmentally Non-Disturbing Under-ice Robotic ANtarctic Explorer) project in EVL’s CAVE2™ Hybrid Reality Environment. Team members include the UIC EVL and Earth and Environmental Sciences Department, Stone Aerospace, NASA Ames Research Center and Montana State University. “EVL is helping people around the world see our complex inter-connected planet through the new lens of data visualization.”
