Professorship for Visual Computing

The Professorship for Visual Computing was founded in 2020 by Prof. Tobias Günther. Our research is devoted to the design of fundamental methods, algorithms and systems for interactive data analysis, visualization and computer graphics. Our work is driven by interdisplinary research in engineering, meteorology, climate science, geophysics, and fluid dynamics.

Nicholas Ingulfsen’s paper “News Globe: Visualization of Geolocalized News Articles” was accepted in IEEE Computer Graphics and Applications!
