Isogeometric Analysis (IGA) introduced in 2005 by Hughes et al. (2005) [1] exploits one mathematical basis representation for computer aided design (CAD), geometry and analysis during the entire engineering process. In this paper we extend this concept also for visualization. The presented post-processing and visualization techniques thereby strengthen the relation between geometry, analysis and visualization. This is achieved by facilitating the same mathematical function space used for
