Scientific Visualization Using ParaView (Hands-on)

ParaView is an open‐source, multi‐platform data analysis and visualization application built on top of VTK. ParaView offers non‐programmers much of the capability of VTK without requiring them to write programs. Through exploration and interaction users can quickly build visualizations to analyze their data using qualitative and quantitative techniques.

This tutorial will present a hands‐on introduction to ParaView. Attendees will get started using this powerful interactive visualization package, and will be guided through the most commonly used visualization techniques.

During this tutorial we will cover the ParaView visualization pipeline, ParaView data types, the ParaView user interface, and common visualization techniques such as Color Mapping, Cutplanes, Contours/Isosurfaces, Hedgehogs, Oriented Glyphs, and Streamlines.
