The GeoWall lets people visualize the structure and dynamics of the Earth in stereo, aiding their understanding of spatial relationships. Making use of inexpensive, polarized 3D glasses, entire classrooms or conference audiences can share the 3D experience. Since the hardware is portable, it's easy to bring visualizations to the audience. In this article we describe the GeoWall hardware and software and discuss how the GeoWall Consortium was instrumental in creating a community of users in a variety of disciplines. Using case studies, we show how the GeoWall helped research and education. Finally, we describe our recent work in high-resolution tiled displays
