Scientific Visualisation Workshop 2014
Welcome to this workshop on scientific visualisation organised by SeSE and SNIC-UPPMAX!
You will learn how to make 3D visualisations using Python. The basics of Python and VTK will be covered the first day. You will get hands on exercises in both Python and VTK, which is the Visualization Toolkit that we use for making both simple and advanced visualisations. This year we have a focus on stereo, so you will get some presentations about stereo visualisations in our 3D lab: 3DIS4U (Room 2115, house 2, Polacksbacken, Uppsala)
In this exercise you will go through some examples in the online VTK Tutorial. If you have not installed VTK on your computer, you have the opportunity to get help with that!
Please read through the Introduction and do the exercises. If you feel that you need more python skills then look here and here, or why not Pythons own tutorial. The continue with this exercise and then this one. When you have come so far you should look around to see what help you can get from the tutorial. Then you can go on to do this lab. Please not that if you have done the exercises and are acquainted with the tutorial, then the lab will be a “piece of cake”!
13:15-16:00, Exercises VTK with coffee break at 14:30
If you did not finish yesterdays lab, you should not worry! Please continue where you stopped. It is better to learn a few things well, than not learning many things! If you feel ready then you can go through these exercises. Afterwards, you can go on an do this lab. Please remember to use the tutorial when you get stuck!
All lectures will be held in room 2115, house 2, floor 1, Polacksbacken, Uppsala. And the Exercises are held in 2315D, which is located in the same house, but on floor 3.
