Room E119 Tuesday 3:00 – 4:55pm (periods 8-9)

CIS4930_CIS6930

I am introducing a new project-based course for undergraduate and graduate students that develops a data acquisition method and visualization technique to solve a practical digitization problem.

The course will be divided into three parts. There will be in-depth discussions and literature reviews of recent work in the field of 3D scanning and imaging, as well as visualization and rendering. Next, students will work through the exercise of using consumer imaging devices to build a capture system. The final part of the course will use existing and newly acquired data samples as input to a visualization algorithm that emphasizes some aspect of the specimen that has real-world value for scientific analysis.

The specific problem will be generated from datasets captured from multiple imaging modalities of biological specimens from rare collections.

Students will be given software libraries and other infrastructure for support to ensure the problem is tractable. Students evaluations will be based on the results of the final project (evaluated at midterm and end of term). Emphasis will be placed on the novelty, usefulness and efficiency of the final algorithm.
