The CoreWall project was funded recently (March 2006) by the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF). It is charged to develop a basic suite of data integration and visualization applications for broad use in the ocean-, lake-, continental-, and ice-coring communities. A CoreWall workshop was held on 8–10 May 2006 in Washington, D.C. to explore possible development pathways for the CoreWall Suite of applications. The original CoreWall application was envisioned by the lake-core community who needed a better way to visualize their cores, do visual core descriptions, and share core photos and data in an integrated environment. A collaboration of ear th and computer scientists from four universities and one consulting firm was established to accomplish these goals.
