VSCSE Science Visualization, Aug. 24-25

This two-day training covers all aspects of visualizing data from a broad variety of domains. The training kicks off with an introduction to visualization followed by best practices when dealing with diverse data (abstract and spatial), demonstrating a variety of methods and techniques on those data sets and demonstrating a range of freely available software. Real world problems for which visualization is needed will be demonstrated and attendees will be taken through the process of visualizing this data and gaining insight. Presented by TACC. On-site attendance and registration is available at https://portal.xsede.org/web/xup/course-calendar​ .
