Abstract

The task of systems for the visualzation of scientific data is to compute images representating the contents of a given data set. This data set, of course, cannot be altered in order to compute better images. Therefore, modeling is not used to create data sets descibing objects, as e.g. in CAD systems. Modeling in scientific visualization means to find the method and the way to compute an image fram a given data set, which presents certain features in that data set in the best possible manner to the user. This paper describes modeling tasks in scientific visualization and the concepts and the architecture of visualization systems. Moreover, it presents examples of modeling in scientific visualization from already implemeted systems at FhG-AGD.
