OpenSpace at The Lunar & Planetary Science Conference


We are excited to partner with the American Museum of Natural History at the 2019 Lunar & Planetary Science Conference to showcase OpenSpace, a NASA-supported open-source data visualization software that lets audiences interact with a range of space science topics. We’re exhibiting a GeoDome Panorama with a 4.5m screen, featuring an OmniFocus 30500 projection system with 2560 x 1600 resolution at 5,000 lumens.

Our WorldViewer software allows us to integrate OpenSpace into the GeoDome using Spout – part of our “open playground” approach to interactive astronomy programming. Planetary science and space mission visualization has been a central focus of development in OpenSpace. Current archives of surface data across a range of spatial scales are capable of being displayed simultaneously for context.  Large scale multi channel display as well as single screen graphics accelerated machines can run OpenSpace, sharing basic mouse navigation.  Multi channel display networking can also be used to synchronize theaters and single screen users across the Internet for guided presentations and networked events.

The conference is happening March 18-22 in Houston, TX. If you plan to attend, please stop by and join us at Booth #22 for a number of space science themed demonstrations live through the conference.  If you would like to speak to us about the GeoDome or other options to showcase your data, click here to schedule a meet-up during the conference!
