Interactive Visualization and Web-Based Exploration in the Physical and Natural Sciences

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.

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.
