LSST Education and Public Outreach (EPO) and the Data2Dome Initiative

2018-01-11T00:00:00Z (GMT) by Bauer, Amanda

The Education and Public Outreach (EPO) group for the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope (LSST) will enable public access to a subset of LSST data so anyone can explore the universe and be part of the discovery process. This includes the planetarium and science science communities that struggle to find curated content in standard data formats. To alleviate these challenges, LSST EPO will deliver original multimedia content following standards established within the Data2Dome (D2D) initiative to streamline the flow of content from research institutions to planetariums in near real time. This talk describes the process.
