This project undertakes the visualization of astronomical data in 3D enabling us to study phenomena such as expanding gas shells and rotating galaxies. We will develop a 3D mathematical model of astronomical observational data, apply this model to the data and display the data utilizing the technologies available through the Virtual Reality Centre. It is expected to lead to the development of astronomy analysis tools and insights into polygon-based computational graphics problems and the adaptation of 3D computer modeling and animation tools developed for the film and design industries for astronomical and mathematical research.
