Tutorial: Scientific Visualization

Visualization is largely understood and used as an excellent communication tool by researchers. This narrow view often keeps scientists from fully using and developing their visualization skillset. This tutorial will provide a "from the ground up" understanding of visualization and its utility in error diagnostic and exploration of data for scientific insight. When used effectively visualization can provide a complementary and effective toolset for data analysis, which is one of the most challenging problems in computational domains. In this tutorial we plan to bridge these gaps by providing end users with fundamental visualization concepts, execution tools, customization and usage examples. Finally, a short introduction to SeedMe.org where users will learn how to share their visualization results ubiquitously. The tutorial will comprise of four closely related sessions as follows: 1 Visualization fundamentals: Lecture – Assay of standard techniques and their utility (45 min) 2 Hands on Visualization with VisIt software on your computer/laptop (80 mins)3 Remote visualization with VisIt software on Comet/Gordon cluster at SDSC. We will provide training accounts. (30 mins) 4 VisIt now ships with SeedMe Python module for sharing visualizations rapidly. A swift introduction to using SeedMe.org will be provided (20 mins) . Pre-requisites: None Level: Introductory/Beginner Requirements: 1. Computer, mouse with scroll wheel 2. VisIt software installed on your computer (version will be provided later)3.
