31. Computer-Generated Medical, Technical, and Scientific Illustration
Half-Day, Tuesday, 2 August, 8:30 am - 12:15 pm
Important research and developments in computer-generated illustration techniques within non-photorealistic rendering (NPR). The course focuses on illustration techniques, including methods for computer-generated technical, scientific, and medical illustration; interactive illustrations of surface and volumetric data; and practical perspectives on the use of illustration in medical education and training.
Required: intermediate knowledge of 3D computer graphics and scientific-visualization algorithms. Programming experience using a 3D library for interactive graphics and some awareness of existing NPR techniques may be helpful. Not required: prior knowledge of or background in artistic techniques, traditional scientific illustration, or perceptual psychology.
Programmers, designers, illustrators, visualization and NPR researchers,
graduate students, and others interested in the latest techniques for
compact, meaningful depictions of objects and data.
