Powers 108

Visualization can mean various things to people of different backgrounds. Information Visualization, Scientific Visualization, and 3-D Visualization among others each have their own flavor. The shared goal of all visualization is to promote communication and understanding through the visual channel of human perception. Whether by giving concrete form to an abstract idea, providing a means to recognize patterns in a chaotic set of data, or generating an immersive environment for collaborative development, improved understanding, or training, visualization can be a useful tool across multiple disciplines. A variety of visualization software and hardware that can be used in multiple areas will be introduced with several demonstrations, focusing on 3-D visualization.
