Scientific Visualization with ParaView

Description: ParaView is an open-source, multi-platform data analysis and visualization application. ParaView users can quickly build visualizations to analyze their data using qualitative and quantitative techniques. The data exploration can be done interactively in 3D or programmatically using ParaView’s batch processing capabilities.

This course is a hands-on, interactive, walk through of the first half official ParaView Tutorial. It teaches using ParaView through examples that start at basic usage and continue through more advanced topics such as temporal analysis and animation.

Instructor: Tyson Whitehead, SHARCNET, Western University.

Prerequisites: None. No prior experience with scientific visualization is necessary. Some programming experiences are helpful but not necessary. Attendees will need to bring their own laptops and should have ParaView installed on their laptops before the course. Sample data will be provided for the exercises (download link will be posted before the Summer School).

Course materials: Course materials will be available.
