Abstract: At NASA’s Scientific Visualization Studio, we have implemented methods to procedurally read science data files and generate graphics at render time. This procedural workflow accelerates visualization production and iteration.

Speaker(s) Bio: Kel Elkins, NASA, USRA, United States of America
Kel Elkins is a data visualizer with NASA’s Scientific Visualization Studio at the Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, MD. He works with scientists to visualize data from NASA missions, including both observational data (from satellites, aircraft, etc.) and supercomputer simulations. These visualizations promote a greater understanding of Earth and Space Science research activities at NASA. Kel holds a Master’s degree in Computer Science and Game Technology from the University of Pennsylvania and a Bachelor’s degree in Aerospace Engineering from Pennsylvania State University.

Greg Shirah, NASA, United States of America
Greg Shirah has degrees in computer science and mathematics from the University of Georgia and from the George Washington University. Greg has worked with computer graphics at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt Maryland for over 35 years. Greg has had made numerous contributions to SIGGRAPH over the years including the computer animation festival, art gallery, traveling art show, dailies, panels, and special sessions. He is currently the lead visualizer at NASA's Scientific Visualization Studio where he designs and develops data-driven scientific visualizations for NASA public outreach.
