Description

This webinar looks at a common tool used for efficient, generic, and easy Topological data analysis and visualization.

The Topology ToolKit (TTK) is an open-source library and software collection for topological data analysis and visualization.TTK can handle scalar data defined either on regular grids or triangulations, in 2D, 3D, or more. It provides a substantial collection of generic, efficient and robust implementations of key algorithms in topological data analysis.

Git is a powerful version control system allowing to record, access, and restore the history of projects. After setting up remotes on the internet or other network, Git is also a mighty collaboration tool. In this workshop, we will use the popular online Git repository hosting site GitHub to practice a collaboration workflow typical of many research teams.

Pre-requisites:

  • Basic knowledge of Git:
    • familiarity with the concept of staging area
    • experience (even if limited) with staging and committing

To brush up on the basics before the workshop, you can go through the UBC Library Research Commons Open Educational Resources online at: Introduction to Git and GitHub.
