VTK is huge and even the 646 pages VTK Book and the VTK
User's Guide are not enough to cover everything in details. That
is the reason why we strongly need any examples, pratical
materials, classes or courses. Please, do not hesitate to send me
any links to such rare things, as they might be of great help. You,
student too :)
Examples and Tests By Classes (VTK 4.x tree, VTK 3.x tree) - Links to source tree examples sorted by
Code - Short example C++ and Tcl code.

to the exercises in the book
"This online resource has been designed to service both beginner
and expert alike for referencing exercise solutions found at the
end of each chapter of The Visualization Toolkit 2nd ed."

(also mentioned in Applications)
"If you like to know how to combine VTK and XFORMS, here is
a very simple and rough example. Please let me know if there are
better ways to do that." (example code available)
Courses, Classes, Presentations
"Visualization examples for the The VISUALIZATION TOOLKIT (VTK),
used in a VTK workshop given at the University of Groningen (RuG)."
REALLY worth a look, lot's of examples.
: Advanced Topics in Computer Graphics Home Page
Presentation -with lots of code , Animating
Water -no code but ask ? , Finite
Element Method Application in VTK -some code
Computer Graphics and Data Visualization - Term Projects
" This is a collection of Term Project completed by the students
in "Advanced Computer Graphics and Data Visualization"
35-6961 for the Fall 1995 semester." And these of
Spring 97. Very interesting projects, but NO code (should ask
for it ?).
Jack Icon/Glyph - Scientific Visualization Project
"The project is to combine 6 MRI images using some form of
glyph. I decided to use a glyph that resembles a person doing "jumping
jacks". Each limb of the icon will be oriented based on the
intensity of pixels from each of the 6 images.". Part of the
Scientific Visualization (91.541) course at UMass Lowell Computer Science Department.
5630 - Scientific Visualization
formerly known as CS 523 : various solutions (+ code) : Class
assignments - see 1 to 4 ,
and also Y.-K. Yang assignments.
to Visualization with VTK
"Lecture 7, CS 341, Univ. of Chicago, Fall Quarter 1998."
Powerpoint presentation, no code, nice illustrations.
Visualization and Virtual Reality
Note : "If you plan to use any of the material provided by
our invited speakers for your own course, please contact me so that
I can check for an OK with the authors.".
VTK is easier to learn using a scripting language, but you might
not be familiar with any of them. These links provide ressources
to Tcl-only examples and tutorials.
for Web Nerds
"...We hope that a professional programmer or MIT student can
breeze through it in one evening. By the end of the evening, that
person should have learned Tcl, learned a little something about
the Web, and not have been bored."
