Art in Scientific Visualization of Terrain Data
This is a record of an invited exhibition mounted by Mahes Visvalingam at the Royal Institution (UK) to accompany the Friday Evening Discourses on :
- Where Art Meets Science by Lord Puttnam
of Enigma Productions, NESTA
on 5 November 1999
- The Information Age : Public and Personal
by Dr J M Taylor
Director General of Research Councils, Office of Science and Technology
on 17 March 2000
The exhibition will be repeated on Friday October 20, 2000 at Trinity House at IAP2000, the annual symposium of the UK Institution of Analysts & Programmers, which is being held in association with the British Computer Society. Symposium Programme
The exhibition focuses on one thread of the CISRG's research on Algorithmic Sketching of Terrain Data; it outlines the background to this research and includes pointers to other innovative visualizations of terrain within the UK. The exhibition consists of 24 x 4.5 feet of poster displays, four computer demonstrations, samples of published journal papers and CISRG Discussion Papers, and examples of innovative maps contributed by others.
This copyrighted web site includes posters and links to other sites. It also include two computer demonstrations of line generalisation and segmentation algorithms.
The posters have been reduced both for speedy viewing on the internet and to discourage misuse of copyrighted material, especially those from other contributors. Even so, they provide a good impression of the theme and content of the exhibition. Click on the thumbnail images with blue borders to access posters. This index page will remain open and the pages accessed through it will be displayed in a different window to ease navigation.
The poster exhibition may be borrowed from Mahes Visvalingam. You can email her at : email@example.com
