Scientific Visualization with ParaView

ParaView Workshop University of Alberta


Monday, December 8, 2014 - 21:00 MST to Tuesday, December 9, 2014 - 0:30 MST

Speaker Info:

University of Alberta researchers are invited to attend a free workshop on Scienctific Visualization with Paraview on Monday, Dec 08. This workshop presents principles and methods for visualizing data resulting from scientific measurements and computations. The discussion will focus on ParaView, but the concepts apply to other visualization tools. Users of ParaView are able to explore data and create visualizations using a visual programming interface. ParaView is open-source and multi-platform, providing great flexibility in collaborative sharing of results.

Workshop participants will work through examples using visualization techniques such as color mapping, surface extraction, glyphs, visualization of scalar and vector fields, isolines and isosurfaces, coloring, and animation. Some programming experience is recommended for this course.

The venue is a computer lab and the machines are powerful enough to do the exercises. Participants will need to have a UofA CCID to access the lab machines and the campus network. Attendees are welcome to bring their own laptops to use for the exercises, but please ensure you have downloaded an installer from prior to the workshop. 

This workshop is sponsored by the Advanced Materials & Processing Laboratory at the University of Alberta.
