Visual Computing Group

The Visual Computing Group is located at the Institute of Media Informatics at Ulm University, and is headed by Timo Ropinski.

Visual Computing is a dicipline of computer sciences which deals with the generation, processing, and analysis of digital images. Our focus is on interactive visualization and visual analytics, which aim at deriving new insights from existing data.

We develop and evaluate visual data analysis methods which make big and complex data comprehensible. Our results are new algorithms and interactive software.

We apply our work primarily to medicine and the natural sciences (biology, astronomy, and physics), but also to areas such as cultural heritage and disaster management. Besides desktop systems, our solutions are designed for mobile devices, head-mounted displays, and our Powerwall setup.
