ECS276: VOLUME VISUALIZATION
INSTRUCTOR: Kwan-Liu Ma
CLASS TIMES: MW, 12:10-1:30 PM, Chemistry 176
Scientists are gaining increasing capability to model complex physical phenomena on computers. Advanced imaging devices can generate very high resolution volume data. The storage space and processing requirements of the resulting data, however, can easily overwhelm existing visualization facilities. In this class, each student is expected to independently create an interactive volume visualization system over three projects. The students will also study and possibly develop different approaches to the problem of visualizing large, time-varying, multivariate volume datasets.
