This chapter demonstrates the range of scientific visualization projects undertaken at Manchester Visualization Center, from archeological to flow-visualization to medical visualization. One of the case studies is a complete turnkey molecular visualization system. The chapter is also intended to demonstrate the flexibility of application visualization system (AVS) products as a modular and extensible visualization system. None of these applications would be possible without the large repository of user-submitted modules available from the International AVS Centre, a supported open-source Website. The chapter presents examples from several different scientific disciplines, all with different requirements. In all cases, the end users have been provided with added understanding of their data through the use of visualization techniques.
