General-Purpose Visualization Tools on SHARCNET


This is a hands-on tutorial on using ParaView, a general-purpose open-source visualization package that can be run on all platforms (Linux, Windows, Mac) both in a standalone mode to render datasets stored locally, and as an interactive client in a client-server mode, in which a remote server processes and renders data. We will go through several exercises covering such important aspects as importing your own data into ParaView using various file formats (VTK, NetCDF, etc), using filters, as well as scripting. No prior experience with scientific visualization is necessary, however some working knowledge of either C/C++ or Fortran would be useful.

Instructor: Alexei Razoumov, SHARCNET, University of Ontario Institute of Technology.

Prerequisites: No prior experience with scientific visualization is necessary. Some knowledge of either C/C++ or Fortran and a desire to visualize your data would be useful.
