From The Rocky Mountain Collegian (Student Newspaper at Colorado State University):

An integral part of the Morgan Library’s efforts to become that information and technology hub is the library’s large-scale Google Liquid Galaxy projector system that operates in the library’s first-floor event hall. The library has a smaller Liquid Galaxy program situated near the back of the first floor computer lab in the library, but this one is unique in that it is displayed on a wall using three different projectors.

“It’s the only one of its kind in the entire world,” Ramsay said.

The Liquid Galaxy displays a geospatial map of the world that students can explore in depth. Students and professors can use the software to track fires, discover geo-fracking sites, compare country’s oil consumption and more. Ramsay believes this system will help display information to students in a way that makes sense.
