Cyprus Visualization Workshop
Jeff Carpenter • February 5, 2014
Stuart Levy and AJ Christensen presented a workshop for about 35 researchers from the Cyprus Institute that came from a broad variety of disciplines, but were predominantly either climate scientists or cultural heritage researchers. The three day event was divided between talks and tutorials. Talks ranged from the purpose and philosophy behind scientific visualization to specific examples of well-executed visualizations.
Workshops were taught using the Cyprus Institute's own high resolution stereo 3D display, scientist-focused visualization software like Partiview, Scientific Python, and Paraview, and artist-focused visualization software like Maya, After Effects, and Houdini. Additionally, the team spoke to individuals who were interested in learning the visualization solutions to their own unique datasets.
