Scientific Visualisation using VTK

spacer

Course Description

The Visualisation ToolKit is an open source, freely available software system for 3D computer graphics, image processing and visualisation, which is used by thousands of researchers and developers around the world. VTK consists of a C++ class library, and several interpreted interface layers including Tcl/Tk, Java, and Python. VTK supports a wide variety of visualisation algorithms including scalar, vector, tensor, texture, and volumetric methods; and advanced modelling techniques such as implicit modelling, polygon reduction, mesh smoothing, cutting, contouring, and Delaunay triangulation.

Further information about VTK

This one-day course is an introduction to the use of VTK for visualisation of large scientific datasets. There are a number of practical exercises which use the Tcl/Tk interface. However, only a very basic understanding of Tcl/Tk programming is required and no prior experience is assumed. VTK is installed and supported on HPCx, although the exercises themselves will be done on local workstations.
