Visualization in Astronomy

Our Visualization Workshop was recently held (21 October 2016) at the River Club in Observatory. The workshop focussed on visualization with the aim to share current knowledge, expertise and work being done in this area, to articulate use-cases for data intensive projects in astronomy, with particular emphasis on MeerKAT and SKA pathfinder projects, and to define collaborative project concepts for visualization.

Researchers from IDIA member institutions and their collaborators presented talks involving visualization of big data and/or astronomy. 

The workshop focussed on the following topics of discussion:

- Multi-dimensional data visualization techniques

- Big data analytics related to Astronomy

- Human-Computer Interaction

- MeerKAT & SKA visualization use-cases

- Technologies for interactive analytics on big data

- Collaborative Project Development
