Planetary Dashboard Project

The “Planetary Dashboard” will feature “worldometers” and other data visualization devices illuminating economic, social and environmental realities affecting people and planet. The "Planetary Dashboard Project" is an initiative of BigPictureSmallWorld, a Philadelphia-area company that develops a variety of programs concerned with global issues and social justice. This charette will be led by Medard Gabel of BigPictureSmallWorld and John "J.D." Dougherty of Haverford College’s Computer Science department. The team will include professionals with expertise in software and exhibit design, web development and data visualization.

The project team seeks individuals with a variety of skills and an interest in global issues and social justice who are able to commit to participate in the full week-long project. Team members will be provided with meals and housing and travel expenses as necessary. Please contact Janice Lion (jlion@haverford.edu; 610-896-1308) to express your interest and describe the skills you would be able to contribute.

Please respond by May 15, 2009.
