Paper Abstract

This work focuses on the attempt to establish an analogue and contiguity between visualization and holography. The majority of methods for processing and analysis data work in the virtual space with its virtual images and shapes. Scientific visualization is an extraction of the significant information from the data space and its presentation as a visual shapes, applicable to the visual thinking. A holography gives us possibility to percept the visual shapes as the virtual object in a form of a real 3D copy, i.e. hologram. We propose to add a light field surrounding the virtual object in description of its computer model. The object is determined as the set of points emit the coherent light. A scheme of direct calculation and printing the digital hologram of the virtual object is also taken into consideration. The result of realization of the scheme for the virtual shape and for the real object is indistinguishable on the stage of reconstruction. This brings us to the concept of the Real Virtuality.
