Abstract

We describe our experience of developing scientific software in an ongoing multidisciplinary research project participated by information scientists and astronomers. In particular, we reflect on how the interdisciplinary collaboration is facilitated by the development of a unique boundary object - a hybrid map of the Universe and scientific discoveries. With reference to theories of interdisciplinary communication, we underline that information visualization serves a fundamental role in scientific software development. The impact of information visualization can go far beyond the content representation, and can facilitate communications across distinct disciplines.
