45. Perceptually Based Visualization Design
Wednesday, Full Day, 8:30 am - 5:30 pm
Room 20 D
Level: Beginning

The basis for effective scientific visualization in perceptual psychology, available visualization techniques (2D, 3D, scalar, vector), technique characteristics in terms of perception, and suitability for particular visualization goals. This course does not focus on implementation techniques (available toolkits provide this), but rather on when techniques are effective, especially in combination.

Prerequisites
No formal prerequisites. Basic experience with computer graphics is helpful, but not necessary.

Topics
Basics of human visual perception applied to visualization. Scalar-field visualization techniques available in 2D and 3D and their applicability to different data types and questions. Vector-field visualization techniques in 2D and 3D and their applicability. Multi-variate visualization techniques and their applicability. Advanced and combined visualization techniques.
