HPWREN Provides High-Speed Connectivity for Demos at a George Wright Society Conference and the SDSU Visualization Center
On April 18, the HPWREN team participated in a demonstration that linked the remote Anza-Borrego Desert State Park with San Diego State University's (SDSU) Visualization Center - following a demo that connected the Park with the George Wright Society Cultural Resources 2003 Joint Conference, which was held at a Mission Valley convention center. This activity was the second in a series of remote interactive presentations that allowed participants to virtually tour the Anza-Borrego State Park via HPWREN.
In addition, graduate students from SDSU's Geology Department deployed several environmental sensors and high-resolution video cameras to capture even more of the area for the virtual "tourists" to have an even closer look at the Anza-Borrego desert - whilst sitting in their meeting rooms.
