Spatial Computing CMPT 261 (3)
An exploration of the major concepts of analytical and computational geometry and an introduction to tools for programming geometric information and displaying the results. Students completing this course will have a basic understanding of how computer graphics systems work; skills in writing programs to display geometric information for graphics display; ability to solve geometric problems using transformations, geometric representations and the basic algorithms of computational geometry; and familiarity with various common mathematical notation for representing spatial objects. Prerequisite: MATH 232 and one of CMPT 125, 126, 128 or 130. Students with credit for ITEC 271, 272 and 273, or IAT 261 may not take this course for further credit.
