$(document).ready(function() EventScope Projects (1999-2006) : Peter Coppin: A Project Portfolio

The EventScope Project (1999-2005)

Director/Principal Investigator: Peter Coppin

Archive site: www.eventscope.org

The Project

The Eventscope project developed publicly accessible “reality browsers” that displayed both archived and updating representations of remote environments derived from on-site robotic sensors. The interface encouraged collaborative work within a community of users. Public exploration of real remote sites presents a variety of interface issues addressed by EventScope, including time delay, public exploration via a single robot, and communication between geographically separate users from diverse backgrounds. Merging public interface with educational and contextual information extended the notion of “interface” to “remote reality library.” Eventscope was a NASA and private foundation-funded project based at Carnegie Mellon University

The Software

EventScope's software was similar to, but predated, Google Earth, but primarily presented Mars datasets. It was a reconfigurable client-server software system that enabled the rapid generation and dissemination of “guided tours” through 3D virtual environment terrains constructed from NASA rover and orbiter data. EventScope's software was used by educators, artists, and scientists, to develop dozens of multimedia experiences that presented NASA data to hundreds of K-16 educational environments (e.g., schools and science museums). A version of EventScope was adapted and used for the science operations interface for the 3-year NASA/CMU Life in the Atacama rover field experiment.
