    Advances in Volume Visualization

Course Organizer(s):



    Moderately difficult course material, due to the level of detail in the algorithms and methodologies. Basic knowledge of hidden-surface methods, rendering models, volume rendering of regular grids, and computer organization recommended.

    Topics Covered
    Specific presentations on advanced topics in volume visualization research and practice, including: algorithms, architectures and application in volume graphics, volumetric global illumination, regular and irregular grid rendering, special-purpose architectures for volume visualization, and advanced applications of volume visualization.

    This course was devoted to advanced and more recent topics in volume visualization and should be viewed as a successor to an introductory course in volume visualization. The course covered the technology and several major advanced applications and techniques, and the challenges confronting the field of volume visualization.
