Evaluation of grades

The module is not graded (only study achievements)..


Different tasks from visualiuzation, e.g.:
  • Visualization of scalar fields: Implemention of algortithms like marching cubes, volume rendering, etc.
  • Visualization of vector fields: Implemention of algortithms like stream lines and surfaces, turbulence detection, detection of topology, etc.
  • Construction of visualization framework for the implemented algorithms with interactive graphical output based on

Competencies / intended learning achievements

After successfully completing the module, students will be able to
  • practically apply methods and techniques of visualization and interaction.
  • explain common visualization and interaction techniques on a theoretical and algorithmic level.
  • implement the complete development cycle of complex visualization tasks.
  • critically reflect and discuss the project results on the basis of application examples.
