Welcome to the homepage of the Computer Graphics and Visualization (CGV) lab
The central task of Computer Graphics (CG) is the creation of images with the help of a computer. There is a loose categorization into 2D and 3D CG. The focus of the CGV lab is on 3D CG that deals with questions like how to represent and discretize a 3D scene, how to design an appealing scene, how to capture 3D data from the real world, how to interactively render complex scenes, how to simulate the propagation of light in a scene, how to build interactive systems, how to simulate nature, ...?
In Visualization one uses CG to present mostly numerical data in form of illustrative images that can be understood intuitively. Here, the central factor is the human observer. In Visualization one tries to optimize an image in a way that the observer can extract the maximum amount of information from it. One interest of the CGV lab is centred on Scientific Visualization, which applies CG and Visualization techniques to scientific data sets.
