Course detail

Data Visualisation

FSI-SVDCompulsoryMaster's (2nd cycle)Acad. year: 2016/2017Summer semester2. year of study4  credits

The course is lectured in winter semester in the fourth year of mathematical engineering study. It familiarises students with basic principles of basic algorithm of computer modelling of 2D and 3D data, namely of scalar fields. Lecture summary: Construction of implicit curves and surfaces, contour lines and iso-surfaces. Algorithms, which construct surfaces – marching cubes and volume algorithms - ray casting, ray tracing.

Learning outcomes of the course unit

Students will be able to visualise the common types of 3D data that are not suitable for tabulation.

Mode of delivery

90 % face-to-face, 10 % distance learning

Prerequisites

Students are expected to be familiar with basic programming techniques and their implementation in Borland Delphi, and with basic 2D and 3D graphic algorithms (colour systems, projection, curves and surfaces construction)
