Accidentally born with lungs instead of gills, Chris is a lover of marine worlds. He wields data and computing to fulfill his dream of re-establishing a balance between humanity and the oceans, guided by Inuit culture from the high arctic community he has called home for 13 years.
Geographic Information Systems (GIS) offer proven mechanisms to present data from science/research, business, and innovation fields, in forms that users can understand and wield for decision making.? GIS translates raw numbers into images, scenes, charts and graphs that bring immediate understanding to users. However, viewers of these data are outside observers, separate and detached from these data. This presentation showcases how users can be immersed in data, as participants in the data, using Virtual Reality.
