When computers were first used to process large data sets, computer graphics provided users with simple visualizations. Today, this discipline of scientific visualization is a mature one which can transform any type of numeric data into an image. Such images range from simple static graphics to complex animated 3D sequences. Visualization techniques have wide-ranging applications in diverse areas such as financial forecasting business, medicine, meterology and engineering. This text brings together a panel of international experts on visualization and modelling, and looks at the latest advances and techniques in topics ranging from genetic algorithms in modelling to visualizing virtual environments.
