On August 6, 2010 this world lost Jim Thomas. His influence and impact on our community were clear and profound. Through his intellect, energy, and passion Jim was able to create an international movement and shape a new discipline – visual analytics. He will be greatly missed but that influence and passion will live on. This page off of the www.vacommunity.org is meant to provide links to information about Jim and his continuing influence. Some of the information will be maintained here so members of the community can continue to enhance and expand its content. Plenty of the material will be under the care of others. Please help to keep all this material updated and relevant.
