Scientific Visualization and Computer Graphics (SVCG)
Our SVCG research group, within the Department of Computing Science, is a part of the Bernoulli Institute for Mathematics, Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence (BI) of the University of Groningen, the Netherlands.
The group carries out research in the areas of scientific visualization, information visualization, software visualization, multiscale shape analysis, illustrative computer graphics, innovative interfaces using large displays, geometric modelling and vector graphics. We apply our research to fundamental and practical problems from the life sciences (functional brain imaging, bioinformatics), astronomy, as well as the CAD industry. The group participates in the research school Behavioural and Cognitive Neuroscience (BCN) and the Neuroimaging Center (NIC) of the University of Groningen and the University Medical Center Groningen.
|October, 2022||We have prepared two activities for Zpannend Zernike, which will be presented in the Forum Groningen on 1 October and accompanied by student researchers (Chris van Wezel and Eelke Landsaat). One is Virtual Ray Tracer, an open-source tool for ray tracing education (available on GitHub, and in simplified form as a web tool and also on Google Play). The other activity is Magic with Data, an interactive tool for showing the uninitiated how (heat) data are turned into insightful visualizations, created in collaboration with Hanze University of Applied Sciences. These activities are supported by Jantina Tammes School and Aletta Jacobs School of the University of Groningen, respectively.|
