Georgia State University’s new Petit (read Petite, though it is anything but) Science Center features a 200 million pixel visualization wall that can be used by teachers, classes and student for new approaches to displaying, examining, and manipulating visual information and data. Th whole wall is divided into four parts which can each feature a different piece of the overall presentation or can be used in coordination for a huge wall of images. Above, Google Earth displays the extent and star fertility of the Nile Delta. Notice where you can actually see the curvature of Earth of to the South West (far left of image).
