A Stereographic Visualization Environment and its Applications

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The data visualization activity at Brookhaven National Laboratory is rooted in programs extending back several decades to develop, evaluate and deploy imaging instruments. Several of these developments, such as Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and Positron Emission Tomography (PET) technology, were targeted for medical imaging. Other applications made use of images derived from larger, general purpose scientific instruments such as the Laboratory's nuclear reactors and particle accelerators. The most recent impetus to the program has been from a cooperative research and development project between BNL and two industrial companies, GTE and Mobil Oil involving microtomographic imaging of oil reservoir rock, which ... continued below

Other applications made use of images derived from larger, general purpose scientific instruments such as the Laboratory's nuclear reactors and particle accelerators. The most recent impetus to the program has been from a cooperative research and development project between BNL and two industrial companies, GTE and Mobil Oil involving microtomographic imaging of oil reservoir rock, which included development of a novel stereoscopic visualization theatre. This 'Vis Theatre' has been subsequently used for research in other scientific disciplines, and has attracted considerable attention in both the technical literature and even the popular press.
