Visualization of 3D data, including scalar fields, vector fields, and medical data.
Make students familiar with current visualization techniques, and teach application of visualization methods to practical problems in science and engineering.
Expanded Course Description:
G. M. Nielson, B. Shriver, Visualization in Scientific Computing, IEEE Computer Society Press, Tutorial, ISBN 0-8186-8979-X.
The prototype visualization systems will be implemented on the graphics workstations resident in the Computer Science Instructional Facility.
Engineering Design Statement:
The students will design prototype software systems to be used for the analysis and visualization of scientific and engineering data sets. In particular, systems for the analysis of mechanical engineering, aerospace engineering, ocean and atmosphere modeling, and medical imaging data will be designed. The design will include both interface and algorithm design.
