Data Visualization and Exploration in the LSST Era

Workshop Description

Astronomy is at a crossroads, and active researchers in the field are facing a changing landscape of best practices driven by the emergence of Big Data. This three-day workshop at NCSA helped establish and disseminate a framework for these new practices through our multi-disciplinary research group that includes data visualization experts, cosmologists, astronomers, and data scientists. This workshop brought together local and external experts from DES, LSST, SPT, ACT, Data Science, and Cosmology to discuss strategies and methods for Data Visualization and Exploration with the help of current cloud and container technologies.
