An information graphics and visualization reading list

An information graphics and visualization reading list | DHHpC12 @ICHASS | Scoop.it

FROM SITE: (Notes: (A) I'd take a look at these books more or less in the order they are presented, as the list starts from the basics and goes to the more advanced stuff; (B) I don't suggest any book about software; (C) I don't mention all books about graphics that I think are relevant —see the photograph above; there are many more,— but just a small and maybe a bit idiosyncratic selection that can help you get started.)

javacv - Java interface to OpenCV | DHHpC12 @ICHASS | Scoop.it

Kenton McHenry suggested as "a Java wrapper to OpenCV."

FROM SITE: JavaCV first provides wrappers to commonly used libraries by researchers in the field of computer vision: OpenCV, FFmpeg, libdc1394, PGR FlyCapture, OpenKinect, videoInput, and ARToolKitPlus. The classes found under the com.googlecode.javacv.cpp package namespace expose their complete APIs. Moreover, utility classes make their functionality easier to use on the Java platform, including Android.

Scientific visualization - Wikipedia

Scientific visualization - Wikipedia | DHHpC12 @ICHASS | Scoop.it

FROM CITE: Scientific visualization (also spelled scientific visualisation) is an interdisciplinary branch of science according to Friendly (2008) "primarily concerned with the visualization of three-dimensional phenomena (architectural, meteorological, medical, biological, etc.), where the emphasis is on realistic renderings of volumes, surfaces, illumination sources, and so forth, perhaps with a dynamic (time) component".[2] It is also considered a branch of computer science that is a subset of computer graphics. The purpose of scientific visualization is to graphically illustrate scientific data to enable scientists to understand, illustrate, and glean insight from their data.

Computer vision - Wikipedia

Computer vision - Wikipedia | DHHpC12 @ICHASS | Scoop.it

FROM CITE: Computer vision is a field that includes methods for acquiring, processing, analysing, and understanding images and, in general, high-dimensional data from the real world in order to produce numerical or symbolic information, e.g., in the forms of decisions.[1][2][3] A theme in the development of this field has been to duplicate the abilities of human vision by electronically perceiving and understanding an image.[4] This image understanding can be seen as the disentangling of symbolic information from image data using models constructed with the aid of geometry, physics, statistics, and learning theory.[5] Computer vision has also been described as the enterprise of automating and integrating a wide range of processes and representations for vision perception.[6]

Proprioception - Wikipedia

Proprioception - Wikipedia | DHHpC12 @ICHASS | Scoop.it

FROM CITE: Proprioception ( /ˌproʊpri.ɵˈsɛpʃən/ pro-pree-o-sep-shən), from Latin proprius, meaning "one's own", "individual" and perception, is the sense of the relative position of neighbouring parts of the body and strength of effort being employed in movement.[1] It is distinguished from exteroception, by which we perceive the outside world, and interoception, by which we perceive pain, hunger, etc., and the movement of internal organs.
