16.1 Scalar Field Visualization

Scalar field visualization is the graphical expression of relationships between scalar values distributed in space.

The difficulty of rendering scalar fields depends on a number of factors; The dimensionality of the data, whether the data has been sampled on a regular grid or not, and the range of values the field can assume.
