Northwest Alliance for Computational Science & Engineering, Oregon State University
Data Center Description
NACSE helps scientists, engineers, and natural resource managers use computers and data more effectively:
* We train researchers how to store data so other people can use it too. * Our software lets researchers develop Web interfaces to their data - without having to become computing specialists. * Our interfaces display search results as maps or graphical summaries, with nothing more than a web browser. * Our data systems help researchers and decision-makers merge their data with information from other groups. * We develop educational interfaces and modules to help students and teachers use real-world data in the classroom. * Our usability research identifies how different people find and use scientific data - and how to make interfaces more helpful to them.
