Research methodologies in science education; visualization and the geosciences
J. Libarkin, and C. Brick 2002 Journal of Geoscience Education 50(4), 449-455

This article addresses the use of visualizations in geoscience education. It traces the technological advancement of visualizations from static materials to animations and interactive models. It observes that the development and validation of tools for the assessment of visualization in the earth sciences is a relatively untouched field of study and goes on to suggests future research on spatial and visualization skills in Earth Sciences.
