David S. Ebert, Hans Hagen, Kenneth I. Joy, and Daniel A. Keim. 07291 Summary – Scientific Visualization. In Scientific Visualization. Dagstuhl Seminar Proceedings, Volume 7291, pp. 1-2, Schloss Dagstuhl – Leibniz-Zentrum für Informatik (2008)


Scientific visualization (SV) is concerned with the use of computer-generated images to aid the understanding, analysis and manipulation of data. Since its beginning in the early 90's, the techniques of SV have aided scientists, engineers, medical practitioners, and others in the study of a wide variety of data sets including, for example, high performance computing simulations, measured data from scanners (CAT, MR, confocal microscopy), internet traffic, and financial records. One of the important themes being nurtured under the aegis of Scientific Visualization is the utilization of the broad bandwidth of the human sensory system in steering and interpreting complex processes and simulations involving voluminous data sets across diverse scientific disciplines. Since vision dominates our sensory input, strong efforts have been made to bring the mathematical abstraction and modeling to our eyes through the mediation of computer graphics. This interplay between various application areas and their specific problem solving visualization techniques was emphasized in the proposed seminar.
