An Artist, No Thanks! Employing Design and Color Theory to Increase Clarity, Perception and Depth within Scientific Visualization
Francesca Samsel will discuss her ongoing work with Los Alamos National Labs, Research Visualization Team and why they hired an artist to help them design the next generation of scientific visualization tools. Their recent work focuses on developing algorithmically generated color maps to extract the maximum perceivable detail within exa-scale data sets. She will also discuss collaborations with the Visualization Division of the Texas Advanced Computing Center; hydrogeologists, neurologists, environmental research teams and more.
