Lab Activity (1) - Follow the Quick Tutorial on pages 8-13 of the
VolView Manual . You can save screenshots in VolView via 'File -> Save Screenshot'. When Print out
pictures to match the following figures, from different viewpoints:
* Both figures on page 10.
* The second figure on page 11.
* The third figure on page 13.
Note that your images will show all four visualization windows by default when
saved with the 'Save Screenshot' menu item. Select 'Window -> (1) volume' to
display only the volume view. Click the arrow on the top-left corner of any
particular view and select one of the other options to switch it to a 2D
view.Don't bother about some tools that are locked.
Lab Activity (2): Visualize the head similarly and take a screenshot

Tuesday July 7
Activity (1) - Go through this lab very carefully. Follow all the steps.
Measurement of Length and Angle
Activity (2) - Let's start with a simple example. 1) Save this Image, DoorWithAngle.jpg
and use the techniques you learned in Activity (1) to estimate the height and width of the window in inches. The paper
on the side is a regular printer paper.
2) On the same picture measure the angle between the side of the door on the
right-hand-side and the white line that connects the corner of the door
to the corner of the window.
Activity (3) - Now let's have some fun with the following project:
An Image Processing Research Project

Before we move on, we need to download a few files:
1) Click on this ZIP file and store it in your My Documents Directory.
2) Click on this ZIP file and store it in your My Documents Directory.
3) Click on this ZIP file and store it in your My Documents Directory.
Now you need to go to start, My Computer, and My Documents. In that directory
double click on each of these three files one-by-one and unzip the file. Make sure the default
directory where the files are extracted to is My Documents. It usually is and you do not have
to change anything.
