The Scientific Visualization Studio (SVS)/610.3 and the Science Data Processing Branch/587, together with the Office of Communications (OOC)/130, have created an iPad application called the NASA Visualization Explorer, or NASA Viz, which was launched in the App Store on July 26, 2011. Mostafavi/610.3 is one of the two programmers responsible for the application programming.
NASA Viz is a magazine-style app with movies, images, and short stories describing NASA's scientific work--past, present, and future. The NASA Viz app leverages the wealth of images and video already existing in the SVS's repository and new multimedia elements as they are being created to tell compelling science stories. Most stories focus on our home planet, but some solar and lunar stories are being told through this app as well and more are being planned. A new story is released every Tuesday and Thursday.
Neema Mostafavi received his B.S. in Biomedical Engineering from the University of California at Davis in 2010. He develops software for the iOS platform and holds an avid interest in the rapidly changing world of mobile applications. Neema's research interests are in the areas of computer graphics and scientific visualization.
