Analysis and generalization of functionalities for scientific visualization in the area of crystallography
A. Yu. Brednikhina, V. A. Debelov
The given work is devoted to the survey of graphical representations that are used in education and researches in the areas of crystallography and crystal optics and belong to functionalities of known mineralogical and crystallographic Internet-resources. The survey concerns, as ut is shown in the paper, to the following set of notions: 3D shape of a crystal, Miller's indices, center / axes / planes of symmetry, an elementary cell and a crystal lattice, forms, optical axes, indicatrices, orthoscopic and conoscopic views of thin sections, etc. Only ideal monocrystals are considered as all learning and information resources in Internet produce graphical representations of idial crystals. Basing on the presented analysis and more than a decade of the development of Internet-resourse «Crystal» authors suggest and justify their approach to construction of the library for scientific visualization in areas of crystallography and crystal optics.
