Summary
Abstract:

Earth Update is an interactive, real-time display system of Earth images and data designed for Museums and Schools and now available to the general public as a “realtime museum on a disk”! Running from the CD-ROM, the program displays hundreds of images and movies of the best of earth images and data, documented, with live web links of how to find out more. Roughly 15% of the ...


Organized by “spheres” (atmosphere, biosphere, geosphere, cryosphere, and hydrosphere, each of the spheres can be run separately, resulting in 6 different kiosks if desired. Each sphere has a section “what” (e.g. what is the atmosphere), “why” (why do we care about the atmosphere), “who” (who studies the atmosphere), and “how” (how do we study the atmosphere). In addition, each sphere has a section “what's hot” (new or controversial topics), “basic info” (fundamental topics), and “latest images” (today's data). The CD-Rom also has many activities, categorized by science standard (including geography and math standards).


Over a million visitors have interacted with our software in museum and school settings. This powerful software suite is available for purchase as a single CD which includes both Mac and Windows versions! Educational and bulk discounts are available.
