Tutorial Details: Data Visualization: Concepts and Techniques in Amira

Date: Tuesday, April 24, 2007, 01:00 pm - 03:00 pm
Location: 585 Walter
Instructor(s): Ravishankar Chityala, MSI

The purpose of visualization is to analyze, understand, and communicate information contained within computed data. There are various tools and techniques in computer graphics that enable raw data to be visualized in 2D and 3D.

Amira is a powerful visualization software package that enables data manipulation, geometry creation, and viewing the data in a meaningful format.

This tutorial will introduce concepts in modeling, surfaces, volume rendering, and measurements in Amira. It will also describe the modular approach in Amira to build a visualization framework for different scientific data types. The tutorial serves varying interest groups ranging from medicine, biology, chemistry, physics, material sciences, geophysics, astronomy, and engineering.
