3D Visualisation demo/workshop

Workshop on "3D Visualisation Challenges for ASKAP"

We are holding a half-day 3D-Visualisation demo/workshop in conjunction with the 1-day workshop on source-finding techniques set for the following day. We focus on 3D because it provides huge challenges for the large HI cubes expected from ASKAP. Simulated HI cubes (two sets available now) will go some way to demonstrating these challenges and finding solutions.

3D Source-finding, i.e. extracting astronomical objects of interest from large HI cubes, is difficult and time-consuming when pushed to the limits of the survey sensitivity (as shown by the HIPASS experience). We require 3D source-finding tools that are both robust and reliable. While interferometric HI data are generally better behaved than single dish HI data, we do - at this stage - not know the behaviour of the novel phased array developed for ASKAP.
