Gaia data visualization workshop

Vienna, 9-11 July 2014


Rationale

The key to the full exploitation of Gaia data, even beyond the core Gaia science cases, is to give astronomers the ability to easily manipulate and visualize a unique and gigantic data set of about 1 billion stars. Astronomers are not the first to be confronted with orders of magnitude increase in data volume and much can be learned already from other research areas dealing currently with the big data challenge.

The main goal of the workshop is to bring together astronomers, experts in data visualization, and researchers in other fields dealing with the visualization of large data bases and discuss how to tackle some of the challenging issues faced by Gaia data visualization.
