Rich Gibson works on the Gigapan and Explorable Microscopy Projects for
Carnegie Melon University and NASA’s Intelligent Robotics Group, and
independently creating high resolution portraits of people and developing
new ways to archive physical spaces with explorable images.

He is a bricoleur hacker, artist, programmer, author, and builder.

He helped create the Neogeography movement, coauthoring Mapping Hacks
and Google Maps Hacks. The process of working with and exploring how we interact
and explore space lead him to the more generalized world of providing both context,
and detail with explorable images.

For the past four years he has been obsessed with creating new ways to capture and use
high resolution images of everything, including the Chaos Communications Camp in 2007,
Volcanos in Arizona for NASA, the incredibly tidy offices of Monochrom in Vienna,
details of cell metosis in mouse testis with sub-micron resolution, and
portraits of people with the details of landscapes.

The BodyTrack project develops open source tools to aggregate and visualize self-tracking data from a variety of sources. We seek to empower individuals to explore how various factors affect them, such as evaluating potential food sensitivities, asthma or migraine triggers, or other environment/health interactions. We will discuss these tools and experiences using them. Read more.
