Center for Geometric Analysis and Data
The Center for Geometric Analysis and Data supports the research and teaching team led by Kevin R. Vixie. It is a separate entity from the universities in the area (WSU and UI), though completely supportive of their general aims. The dual research focus of this center is on (1) geometric analysis and (2) the application of insights from geometric analysis to challenging data analysis problems. The teaching focus is broad-based ranging from advanced, small scale research classes to public lectures and interactions with students of all ages.
The Panoramic Photo above was taken by Johann Burkhard: http://johannburkard.de/ whose photos can be found here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/germanium/. The photo we use can be found here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/germanium/328889775/sizes/l/ and is (I believe) a view from the top of Großer Traithen (Great Traithen) a 1,852 m peak in Austria.-~
