Summary
Abstract: WorldWatcher, a supportive scientific visualization environment for the
investigation of scientific data, is an enhanced version of the ClimateWatcher
software that has been in use in K-12 and college classrooms since April 1996.
Like its predecessor, WorldWatcher provides an accessible and supportive
environment for students to explore, create, and analyze scientific data. Its
goal is to provide students with access to the same features found in the
powerful, general-purpose visualization environments that scientists use while
providing them with the support they require to learn through the use of the
tools.
