Abstract:


    Prerequisites
    Experience with scientific visualization systems and terminology, and an understanding of computer graphics programming.

    Topics Covered
    Real-time, hands-on case study demonstrations of the convergence of visualization methods with World Wide Web tools.

    Description
    The convergence of visualization methods with the World Wide Web and the relationship between real-time interactivity and exploration of scientific information. Highly illustrative atmospheric, oceanographic, and geographic examples were demonstrated in real time. Also highlighted: application of visualization tools and interactive techniques to examination and interpretation of scientific data sets, developing effective visualization paradigms for high-speed networking, database management, heterogenous computing platforms, user interface design, collaborative computing, science education, and implementation of animation techniques.
