Computer Graphics Laboratory ETH Zurich


Visualization - SS 21 - Course Project

Course Project

In the course project, students form groups of 3-4 people and build an interactive visualization of a real-world data set. The implementations should be based on the Visualization Tool Kit (VTK).


Most data sets originate from past IEEE Scientific Visualization Contests. Note that we provide only a subset of the original data to keep the file size somewhat reasonable. Feel free to download more data from the original VisContest websites.

The downloads are restricted to computers within the ETH Network (IP = 129.132.*, 195.176.*, 10.5.*, 10.6.*).


Below, you find more details on the schedule of the course project. The relevant documents will be published on Moodle.
