Abstract:


    Prerequisites
    Familiarity with rendering techniques such as ray tracing and path tracing. Working knowledge of basic optics concepts and radiometric terms. Experience with Monte Carlo methods is helpful, but not required.

    Topics
    Spectrophotometric and goniophotometric measurements, biological factors that affect scattering and absorption of light by plants, models used in botany and remote-sensing applications, and biologically based models aimed at rendering applications. Advanced components of this course will address accuracy and performance issues.

    Description
    Physically and biologically based models of light interaction with foliar tissues. This course provides implementation details and background information that are often omitted from publications. The emphasis is on scientific issues that must be addressed to achieve a synthesis of realistic and predictable plant images.
