Ok every possible field? I don't have the time to do that http://www.opengl.org/discussion_boards/ubb/biggrin.gif . But the major ones...i'd be happy to. You have:

Game Programming : This is probably the biggest field that people learn graphics to be in. The CAD programs : These are 3d programs that engineers use quite a bit for design and visualization.

Ok there is a lot more to the list, but these are the MOST major ones! I'll let someone else add on to the list http://www.opengl.org/discussion_boards/ubb/biggrin.gif . Later!

The main use of openGL library is to provide a standard set of 3D drawing routines that can be use to build 3D or objects or worlds.
The idea is in having a standard programming language for 3D graphics, allows a program written with openGL can more easly be translated to Mac, Linux, etc.

There of so many uses for openGL, any place a 3D object is needed to be drawn.

3D games, 3D CAD, Science, math, physics, medical.... the list goes on.
