Abstract
This paper examines the use of scientific visualization techniques and a geographic information system (GIS)-based `movie' to examine the Chesapeake Bay water quality data. Following the suggestion of Knapp (1992) and Buttenfield and Ganter (1990), the paper follows the framework of problem identification, data analysis, illustration, and decision making. The images shown in the demonstration are volumetric interpolation model results. The model result files were transferred to a Macintosh II and visualized using a mapping and visualization program. The resulting PICT files are then displayed sequentially by animation software.
