Novel Physical Representations for the Visualisation of Science Data and Mathematics

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Conference paperConference paper

    Abstract

    Here we present technologies one normally encounter being used for frivolous merchandising, to the presentation and visualisation of scientific data and mathematics. Three particular print technologies will be presented, they are glasses free lenticular prints, 3D printing (also known as rapid prototyping) and crystal engraving. The relative merits of each technology will be presented, what forms of data they are most suited to, the challenges and limitations, and some details of how required data formats are created. The discussion will be illustrated by examples from the authors application of the technologies in the context of creating engaging data presentations and visualisation for research, public outreach, education, museum and art gallery exhibition.
