Visualization of (un)certainty
Convener: Niklas Röber  | Co-Conveners: Michael Böttinger , Torsten Möller 

Almost every simulation or measurement conducted is affected by uncertainty; or put in other words, the only certainty is the uncertainty of the data. Although there are a number of techniques available to visualize uncertainty, there is still a lot of "uncertainty" in how to handle this data, and how to integrate it as part of a good visualization. In many cases, the uncertainty of the data can be quantified to some extend, for instance through ensemble simulations, and then be used in the visualization to display the validity of the data.

This session brings together researchers and practitioners from the geo sciences interested in dealing with uncertainty in their data. We invite submissions for best practices in handling and visualizing uncertainty in the data, but we are also highly interested to hear about new techniques and workflows that are able to efficiently yet effectively display a variable along with the (un)certainty of its data.
