Tutorial Details: Introduction to Avizo

Date: Thursday, November 18, 2010, 01:00 pm - 03:00 pm
Location: 575 Walter

Avizo is powerful visualization software that enables data manipulation, geometry creation, and viewing in a meaningful format. This tutorial will describe the modular approach in Avizo to build a visualization framework for different scientific data types. The tutorial will also introduce concepts in computational geometry, modeling, and surface and volume rendering in Avizo. The tutorial serves varying interest groups including medicine, biology, chemistry, physics, material sciences, geophysics, astronomy, and engineering.

Avizo evolved from Amira. Currently the packages are almost identical, but as the programs develop, Amira will be focused on the life sciences and Avizo will be focused on engineering, manufacturing, materials science, geosciences, and other industrial and scientific domains.
