Description of exams and course work
The students demonstrate that they can answer questions concerning the theoretical and methodological foundations of scientific visualization. They know important application domains where visualization methods are used, and they are familiar with the application-specific data modalities a visualization person is confronted with. They also demonstrate the ability to apply the learned concepts and methods, such as the color mapping, iso-contouring or particle-tracing, to derive solutions for specific visualization problems. The exam captures all content discussed in the lecture.
The exam may be repeated at the end of the semester.
