VisFiles - The next surge of visualization research

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle


It has been twenty years since the surge of visualization research following the publication of the report on Visualization in Scientific Computing by the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF) in 1987. Visualization has become a mature discipline, and also an indispensable tool for understanding and communicating vast amounts of information in many fields of study. Now we are seeing a second surge of visualization research. One stimulus is the widespread, day-to-day reliance of the Web, while the other is the continuing advances of scientific supercomputing.
