We describe how techniques from computer graphics are used to visualize pool fire data and compute radiative effects from pool fires. The basic tools are ray casting and accurate line integration using the RADCAL program. Example images in the visible and infrared band are shown which give qualitative insights about the fire data. Examples are given of irradiation calculations and novel methods to visualize the results of irradiation calculations.
