Abstract: The vast quantities of data produced by modern radio telescopes have outstripped conventional visualization techniques available to astronomers. ATNF staff have developed new visualization techniques to give astronomers a greater intuitive insight into their data. While visualization techniques in other areas find some application in astronomy, problems peculiar to the field require new techniques, such as methods for identifying three-dimensional regions. This paper presents an overview of some of the problems of visualization for astronomy and describes experiments with the Spaceball, a three-dimensional pointing device.
