3D Visualisation of galaxy data
by Bärbel Koribalski (CASS)
3D Visualisation of gas and stars in the spiral galaxy NGC 5204 made using Splotch. The HI data were provided by Gyula Jozsa; optical images are from the Digitized Sky Survey. We visualise the 3D shape, including the warped outer HI disk, of the galaxy using the results from the Tilted Ring Fitting Code (TiRiFiC). Splotch visualisation by Tim Dykes. This galaxy also features in Chris Hammang's animation to be launched this afternoon at the 3D Visualisation workshop.
