Scientific Visualization Workshop

E-Classroom, 225 Lewis Science Library
Event Description
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 experiments. 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 behavior of variables over time. The software is freely available for Mac, Windows, and Linux platforms and is installed 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. Instructor: Eliot Feibush, Computational Scientist, PPPL
