Scientific Visualization Using MATLAB (Hands-on)

MATLAB is a high-performance language for technical computing. It integrates computation, visualization, and programming in an easy-to-use environment where problems and solutions are expressed in common mathematical notation. MATLAB has facilities for producing a wide variety of plots, graphs, surfaces, volumes, and specialized visualizations for scientific data.

This tutorial will present a hands-on introduction to producing scientific graphics with MATLAB. We will begin with examples of various plotting methods, including surface plots, slices, contours, isosurfaces, oriented glyphs, streaklines, etc. In addition, we will cover annotation, color mapping, MATLAB’s underlying graphics model, and the production of high-resolution images.
