The Power of Scientific Visualization

Scientific visualization can be applied across a number of areas, including engineering, material science, sensor/drone data, geospatial, and life sciences. We all know the advantages of seeing a bar chart with data instead of reading the numbers in text. The larger your dataset, the greater the value of seeing it visually and being able to pinpoint the critical areas for decisions.

This one hour webinar provides an overview of the power of scientific visualization during the innovation process. The session begins with a general introduction to supercomputing and scientific visualization. It then illustrates the decision points for a dataset size that fits on a typical desktop, before showing what can be done using a supercomputer for data that’s too large for a desktop.

There are no prerequisites and no technical knowledge is needed.

This session is a precursor to the Data Analysis & Visualization with Paraview workshop, a 3.5 hour hands-on course where participants will learn how to run scientific visualizations on their desktop.
