Date:

Speaker Info:

Alex Razoumov
Visualization Coordinator

Description

This webinar is geared towards all researchers who need to visualize their 2D or 3D data and want to automate their visualization workflow. We will take a look at the Python interface in VisIt, one of several popular open-source, general-purpose visualization packages.

We will learn different ways to launch scripts and will use them for a number of rendering tasks including processing time-dependent datasets and creating animations. We will also take a look at several other interesting topics in VisIt workflows such as visualizing the terrain in 3D and rendering molecules.

Prerequisite Knowledge and Requirements:

  • This is an information-sharing session only, with demonstrations led by the speaker for participants to observe. No previous experience with VisIt or Python is required. 

Who Should Attend:

  • Anyone interested in data visualization tools is welcome to attend.
  • This session is open to all faculty, students and staff in any discipline.
