The data generated during the simulation, measurement and modeling of processes have different and sometimes complex characteristics. This lecture provides the basic knowledge on how to prepare, visualize and analyze these data. The acquired knowledge should lead to a better understanding of the underlying data and should include important algorithms and data structures for their representation. The focus is on methods of 3D visualization, which are implemented in the exercises with the help of the established libraries.

Watchable TED Talk by Miriah Meyer on the topic: Information Visualization for Scientific Discovery.
