CSCI-4973 - Spring 2012
Introduction to Visualization
Course OverviewVisualizing data is a key step in understanding many problems. This course is designed to introduce students to methods of visualizing many different types of data, such as images, 3D surfaces, flow fields, and medical data. We will use software such as OpenGL and Visualization Toolkit (VTK) to demonstrate these techniques. Course activities include weekly homework assignments, in-class critiques of visualization artifacts, and a final project to explore creative uses of these techniques. This course is open to both undergraduates and graduate students from all disciplines and skill levels.
PrerequisitesC++ programming experience (equivalent to CSCI 1200 Data Structures) is required.
