Diving Deeper into IDL Graphics - US

Meeting Description:

The keystone of the IDL 8.0 release is Graphics; a new graphics system that combines the easy scripting capabilities of Direct Graphics with the beautiful, OpenGL-based visualizations of Object Graphics. Graphics allows a user to programmatically create a data visualization, then modify it — resizing, rotating, panning, or zooming the graphic, changing fonts and colors, or adding legends and colorbars — either programmatically or interactively.


Whether you’re a long-time Direct Graphics user or completely new to IDL, please join us for this live web seminar to see how easy it is to use Graphics to produce scientific visualizations in IDL.


Topics will include:


  • An overview of the Graphics library of routines
  • Calling syntax: how to use Graphics properties and methods
  • Combining visualizations
  • Organizing multiple visualizations in a window
  • Headless plotting
  • Producing publication-quality graphics


This webinar is available to the public. No previous experience with IDL or Graphics is necessary. Preregistration is required.
