Converting Earth and Ocean Science data into meaningful visual representations provides insight and understanding of environmental systems

Scientific Visualization converts Earth and Ocean science data into compelling visual representations with high aesthetic and quantitative value. With graphical representations of multi-dimensional science data, CEV provides images and animations that allow scientists to interpret data and communicate their findings. 

Through a masterful application of color theory, text layout, and illustration components, CEV visualizations support narratives that explain and promote science to general and targeted audiences. 

CEV produces Earth and Ocean visuals using scientific visualization software, geographic information systems as well as 3D modeling software.  Final visualizations are often combined with additonal graphics using presentation packages and video editing software.
