From Transfer Functions to Level Sets: Advanced Topics in Volume Image Processing.
The sampling and analysis of digital data is intrinsic to the field of computer graphics and the more specialized area of visualization. Understanding how our image processing choices affect the eventual products of our efforts is an essential element of good visualization design. The purpose of this course is to serve as a review of many of the concepts and theories that serve as the foundations of volume image processing and analysis as well as an introduction to new and emerging concepts in volume image generation. This treatment can be neither comprehensive nor exhaustive, for that would reach beyond the scope of this course. We attempt to introduce each topic and provide pointers to references for more complete background reading and to conferences and journals where active research in these areas is published.
