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-3D form.

Amira is a powerful visualization software that enables data manipulation, geometry creation and viewing in a meaningful format. This tutorial will introduce concepts in computational geometry, 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.
