Abstract : Visualization is often referred to as scientific visualization or visualization in scientific computing. Visualization helps us extract useful information from complex or often voluminous data sets through the use of interactive graphics and imaging. The theory of visualization uses foundations of the following fields and unifying them: Computer Graphics, Image processing, Computer Vision, Computer Aided Design, Signal processing, User Interface Studies, Cognitive Science, and Computational Geometry. The visualization technology was started with excitement and enthusiasm and gradually changed the scientific field for the past two decades. In this presentation we briefly review the following topics: Visualization - Some important points to note Visualization - Microarchitecture workbench Visualization - Medical field Visualization - Computer Generated Forces (CGF).
