Visualization Workshop: Astronomy Imaging and Advanced Visualization of 3-D Datasets
18:00 Wed 04 Feb to 01:00 Fri 06 Feb 2009

ATNF Marsfield

 

The visualization challenges for astronomers include creating images for public outreach, especially relevant during the International Year of Astronomy, and presenting intrinsically multidimensional data within research papers that are exclusively 2-dimensional.

The following 2 workshops are designed to inform astronomers about approaches to these challenges and provide hands-on experience with colour image creation and 3D plot presentation.

For requirements for the hands-on portions of the visualization sessions, the abstracts for each lecture, and other details, please see http://www.physics.umanitoba.ca/~english/vizATNF/

If you have one, please bring a laptop for the hands-on portion. We will work in groups of 2 or 3 so laptops can be shared.
