Introduction to Scientific Visualization
This free mini-course will introduce participants to scientific visualization techniques in the VisIt software package.
Scientific visualization combines computer graphics with data generated by simulations and acquired from ex-periments. It enables insight, verification, and is very valuable for presentations and publications. VisIt has a graphical user interface for exploring and displaying data. It also connects to a rendering engine that can run in parallel to handle large amounts of data. In addition, VisIt can produce animation to represent complex behav-ior of variables over time. The software is freely available for Mac, Windows, and Linux platforms and is in-stalled on the Princeton University High Performance Computing Systems and in the PICSciE Visualization Laboratory.
The mini-course assumes no prior experience with visualization tools. It is intended for researchers interested in developing visual representations of their data. The session features hands-on lab exercises in the New Media Center.
