Life on Earth is a National Science Foundation-funded multi-institutional project to (1) advance public understanding of biodiversity and the history of life on Earth, and (2) advance our knowledge of how people interact and learn from large interactive science data visualizations on multi-touch tabletop displays in public settings. The project team has developed a series of learning activities that can now be experienced in multiple museums. The focal exhibit, utilizing large data sets from four online databases including Tree of Life web project, Encyclopedia of Life, National Center for Biotechnology Information and Time Tree, allows visitors to explore the relationships of thousands of species over 3.5 billion years of life on Earth.
