INSIGHT seeks out scientists with questions that can benefit from visualization. INSIGHT has spent a decade collaborating on diverse projects worldwide, often crossing discipline boundaries. We work with museums, universities, foundations, and fellow non-profit organizations. We build web sites for data dissemination, present at peer-reviewed conferences, and support technology transfer and training.
Watch this space for our year-end review of INSIGHT's projects, 2000-2010.
