About Human Face of Big Data
The Human Face of Big Data is a multi-platform media project that explores the world of Big Data. The project’s intention is to start a global conversation about an information revolution that tracks our existence in ways never before possible. The book, interactive viewer app, iPad ebook and documentary invite us to consider the promise and the peril of humanity’s ability to collect, analyze and visualize the vast amounts of data generated by modern existence.

About EARTHWATCH PROJECT
Data Integration and Visualization in a Changing World Project which seeks to improve our understanding nature’s response to global change by providing the following outcomes:
Identifying relevant and accessible existing independent data-sets (e.g. NOAA weather data, and ocean temps, USGIS soil and geology data, E-Bird species presence, etc.)
Developing a mechanism to in-stream these datasets into a larger regional or global datasets, then analyzing them according to specific temporal data points
Developing mechanism to in-stream citizen scientist/Earthwatch project data-sets into these larger data-sets, developing a platform for broader, deeper analysis
Developing visual representations of the temporal changes in species, eco-systems, etc.
Providing a base-line of existing data-sets from which to examine future changes
Improving sharing and visualization of these combined datasets so that managers and the general public can more intuitively and rapidly grasp how nature is changing and thus how to better manage resources in the face of this change
Providing Earthwatch with a model of citizen science that allows for more accessible, localized, spontaneous and interaction
The opportunity to scale the project, nationally through other National Park Service locations, and globally through Earthwatch’s network of PIs
