Science: 2011 Visualization Challenge

Separation of a Cell, Andrew Noske et al. (Illustration - People's Choice)

An article describing the 2011 International Science and Engineering Visualization Challenge just appeared in Science 3 February 2012 (Vol. 335 no. 6068 p. 525, DOI: 10.1126/science.335.6068.525). Access to all materials in this section is FREE (like in free beer), especially the web-gallery of the corresponding special issue available as a slideshow is definitely worth a visit.

Each year, Science Magazine and the National Science Foundation host the International Science and Engineering Visualization Challenge. The 2011 Challenge received over 200 submissions in five categories, which were evaluated based on visual impact, effective communication of a scientific idea, and overall originality. Visualizations with the most votes from the public received the People’s Choice award.

Among the Informational Posters & Graphics I like “The Cosmic Web“, and all the videos are just awesome.
Congrats to FoldIT for making 1st Place in the “Interactive Games”-Category and thanks to Sathyapriya Rajagopal for the link!
