Digital Museum: Collaboration with the Smithsonian

In this research we will explore the use of visualization and animation in support of several projects at the national zoo's Center for Biological Research. This project includes visualization of digitized biological artifacts (i.e. skulls, skeletons), animation of animal locomotion, and shape transformation (3D morphing). The ultimate objective is the "Digital Museum" that allow users to access 3-D artifacts which may be located far away electronically.
