Foresight – Global Change Analytics: Communicating Complex Science Through Interactive Dashboards

Presentation Date
Thursday, December 14, 2023 at 2:10pm - Thursday, December 14, 2023 at 6:30pm
MC - Poster Hall A-C - South



As scientific models continue to grow in complexity and the amount of detail they capture so too does the size and complexity of the data outputs. Managing the overwhelming amounts of data and curating it into key insights and messages is a big responsibility for any scientific team. This talk presents the ongoing development of “Foresight”, an online platform to visualize and interact with data outputs from the Global Change Intersectoral Modeling System (GCIMS) eco-system of human-Earth system models. The presentation discusses the challenges of managing data storage, selecting and curating key visualizations, as well as the balance between providing simplified digestible results while still ensuring transparency and access to reproducible and detailed results.
