— Proper visualization of process data in underground coal gasification (UCG) may improve understanding of researched phenomena and therefore support further development of novel techniques. This work concentrates on the visualization aspects of modelled data, which describe the mentioned process. Firstly, it is presented how unorganized point cloud given as an input for the system is transformed with point extraction methods. The goal of the transformation is to diminish the number of relevant data to make the point cloud visualization clear. Secondly, the possibilities to apply surface reconstruction techniques for cavity visualization are discussed. Finally, the results of visualization are presented which support the claim that applying relatively simple techniques may provide highly functional visualization system.
