Visualization and Data Analysis in Earth and Climate Science (co-organized)
Convener: N. Röber  | Co-Conveners: M. Böttinger , T. Nocke , M. Sips 
Mon, 23 Apr, 15:30–19:00  / Room 25

An effective visualization and data analysis becomes increasingly more important with the growing sizes of data sets. This is especially true for the earth and climate research communities, which produce large amounts of data that need to be analyzed and well understood.

In a first part, this workshop aims at the understanding of commonly employed 2D and 3D visualization techniques, and explains their basic principles, their advantages, but also their limitations. In a second part, some of the standard tools used in visualization are exemplary discussed using data from the area of application.

For this second part, we announce a "Call For Data". If you have difficulties with the analysis and/or visualization of your data sets, or if you would like to see what we can do with your data, then please, send us your data. We will look at your data and select a wide range of different data sets that will be used in this workshop in live demonstration.

This half-day workshop is taught and organized by the German Climate Computing Centre (DKRZ), the German Research Center for Geo Sciences (GFZ), the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR), the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK), and the SimVis GmbH from Vienna.
