COSC 370. Computational Science: Data and Visualization. 3 Hours.

An introduction to data and visualization, part of the interdisciplinary field of computational science. The course contains a brief introduction to the network environment and the UNIX operating system. Because large Web-accessible databases are becoming prevalent for storing scientific information, the course covers the concepts and development of distributed relational databases. Effective visualization of data helps scientists extract information and communicate results. Students will learn fundamental concepts, tools, and algorithms of computer graphics and scientific visualization in three dimensions. Throughout, applications in the sciences are emphasized.

Prerequisite: COSC 235 with a minimum grade of C.
