Only a few years ago advanced scientific visualization techniques were largely limited to the realm of visualization experts, and employed primarily as a communication aid to illustrate complex phenomena. Thanks to the commoditization of computer graphics hardware, and the emergence of mature, user-friendly, domain-focused software packages, scientific visualization is increasingly becoming an indispensible tool used by resarchers in their day-to-day efforts to analyze data and extract new insights. This workshop will provide an overview of some of the open source software packages that are available, and most relevant, to researchers in the geo-sciences. Attendees can expect to gain a basic understanding of the capabilities of these powerful visual data analysis environments; learn which tools may be most appropriate for their own needs; and have an opportunity to talk with tool developers, on-hand for the workshop.
