Resource for Free High-Quality Science Images
After taking a short hiatus from writing after graduation from the SHERP program at NYU, I’m ready to launch this blog properly.
What sort of blog is this going to be you might ask? What the heck is a collision of science, journalism and technology? Well, I’m not exactly sure either. But science, journalism and especially journalism fueled by technology (i.e. multi-media journalism) are passions of mine. So any given post might be about journalism…or science…or science journalism… or the technology of science…or journalism technology…I think you get the picture.
To start things off, I’d like to share an amazing resource that I found today when looking for images to use in the header of this blog. It’s a “cost and royalty-free” symbol library created by the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science.
The library holds over 1500 custom-made “vector” graphics (graphics that can be scaled without loss of quality). The aim of the project is to allow scientists and environmentalists without art skills to access a library of high-quality symbols for presentations.
This looks like a valuable resource for anyone interested in communicating science in a visual way…including journalists.
