NCAR & UC-San Diego Expanding Geo/Bio-science Data with NSF Grant

The National Center for Atmospheric Research and the University of California at San Diego have a National Science Foundation Grant to improve visualization between different, disparate data-sets.  The project is known as WASP (Wavelet-enabled Progressive Data Access and Storage Protocol).

The idea is to improve database scanning times to extract only what is needed in a more efficient way.   If more detail is needed then you can pull more, but not more than is needed which will improve data processing time by not over-processing which increases time to get the data, which could be significant.  It decreases time to get 4D, 3D, or 2D data-sets in a more useful format to depict events and the processes that make them up.
