What is Scientific Visualization?

Visualization can be defined as the process of representing abstract business or scientific data as images that can aid in understanding the meaning of the data. Scientific visualization can be described as the subset of visualization specifically applied to science. Mathematica provides a powerful tool for creating scientific visualizations. It provides a unified working environment that can tackle numerical and symbolic operations and provides a consistent language for generating visualizations. This provides an advantage over many other solutions where multiple tools are required to accomplish the final goal.

Note: This site still contains some Mathematica 5.2 visualizations. As time passes, I plan to add the version 6, and later, equivalents. For animations, this transition will replace the animated GIFs with Flash animations which will require a plugin. In the mean time, for more powerful visualizations, see the links below.
