Preface

OpenGL is a multiplatform, cross-language, and hardware-accelerated application programming interface for the high-performance rendering of 2D and 3D graphics. An emerging use of OpenGL is the development of real-time, high-performance data visualization applications in fields ranging from medical imaging, simulation or modeling in architecture and engineering, to cutting-edge mobile/wearable computing. Indeed, data visualization has become increasingly challenging using conventional approaches without graphics hardware acceleration as datasets become larger and more complex, especially with the evolution of big data. From a mobile device to a sophisticated high-performance computing cluster, the OpenGL libraries provide developers with ...
