Visualization spotlight at the IEEE Vis in Vancouver / Canada

Nov 04, 2019

Marc Rautenhaus of the Regional Computing Center of the University of Hamburg (RRZ) and Michael Böttinger of DKRZ have co-jointly invited the conference participants of the international visualization conference IEEE Vis2019 in Vancouver to a 90-minutes lasting "Application Spotlight" session on "Visualization in Meteorology & Climate Sciences: Recent Research & Open Challenges".

In several short presentations, the needs of various application groups as well as application-oriented solutions were presented and discussed. After an introduction Marc Rautenhaus showed typical visualization tools being used in the weather forecast, Phil Austin (UBC) reported on analyzes of cloud simulations, Tobias Günther (ETH Zurich) showed work on 3D visualization of local wind phenomena, John Clyne (NCAR) reported on "Progressive rendering of large atmospheric data sets" and Niklas Röber (DKRZ) presented his work on in-situ visualization in climate research. At the end, about 50 participants had time for further discussion.


The IEEE Visualization (VIS) conference was held October 20-25 in Vancouver, Canada and is the world's largest and most important conference on visualization and computer graphics. The conference focuses on three subtopics: IEEE Visual Analytics Science and Technology (VAST), IEEE Information Visualization (InfoVis) and IEEE Scientific Visualization (SciVis).
