Course literature, preliminary list
OpenDX - Paths to
Visualization by David Thompson, Jeff Braun and Ray Ford, 60 USD. The
book has to be bought from the website given above.
This book does not cover much theory but is the
best way to learn OpenDX, as well as explaining how to go about the practical
matters of making a visualisation.
This can be purchased from the NADA student office for approximately150 SEK (exact figure not yet available). It contains
the course schedule, the laboratory exercises, old exams and the following articles:
