English term or phrase:scientific measurements
This paper surveys the variety of ways visualization is being used to make information more accessible. Most of the applications and techniques discussed in this paper have been in development for less than a decade. Other visualization applications have been in existence for quite a bit longer; scientific visualization, for example, is a well-established field. But scientific visualization is also a relatively specialized field, focused on data that describes physical objects and scientific measurements. It is a way to visualize real objects that are otherwise difficult to see and manipulate, such as molecular structures, or to view simulations of scientific phenomena, such as the flow of air over wings. Because of this specific focus, scientific visualization has been the domain of a relatively small number of trained scientists.
