Dave Kasik is Boeing’s Senior Technical Fellow in visualization and interactive techniques. He is pursuing new ways of using visualization for huge amounts of both geometric and non-geometric data.Dave has worked to make 3D geometry available to the entire Boeing user community. Examples include IVT/Superviewer, which lets users see an entire virtual Boeing aerospace product using standard PCs and GPUs, and low-end visualization, which gives users access to 3D engineering drawings, parts lists, training material, etc. via the Web.Dave is pioneering the use of visual analytics to help extract more information from complex non-geometric data. Visual analytics supplements more traditional analytic techniques (like statistics and data mining) with a human’s ability to use vision to find anomalies and detect trends. Emerging visual analytics tools are being explored in areas as diverse as safety and marketing.
