      We propose a novel vortex core line extraction method based on the lambda_2 vortex region criterion in order to improve the detection of vortex features for 3D flow visualization. The core line is defined as a curve that ...
    • Discrete Multi-Material Interface Reconstruction for Volume Fraction Data 

      Anderson, John C.; Garth, C.; Duchaineau, Mark A.; Joy, Kenneth I. (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2008)
      We present the results from a user study looking at the ability of observers to mentally integrate wind direction and magnitude over a vector field. The data set chosen for the study is an MM5 (PSU/NCAR Mesoscale Model) ...
    • Lagrangian Visualization of Flow-Embedded Surface Structures 

      Garth, Christoph; Wiebel, Alexander; Tricoche, Xavier; Joy, Ken; Scheuermann, Gerik (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2008)
      The notions of Finite-Time Lyapunov Exponent (FTLE) and Lagrangian Coherent Structures provide a strong framework for the analysis and visualization of complex technical flows. Their definition is simple and intuitive, and ...
    • Interactive Exploratory Visualization of 2D Vector Fields 

      Isenberg, Tobias; Everts, Maarten H.; Grubert, Jens; Carpendale, Sheelagh (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2008)
      In this paper we present several techniques to interactively explore representations of 2D vector fields. Through a set of simple hand postures used on large, touch-sensitive displays, our approach allows individuals to ...
    • Illustrative Parallel Coordinates 

      McDonnell, Kevin T.; Mueller, Klaus (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2008)
      Illustrative parallel coordinates (IPC) is a suite of artistic rendering techniques for augmenting and improving parallel coordinate (PC) visualizations. IPC techniques can be used to convey a large amount of information ...
    • Interactive Visualization of Multimodal Volume Data for Neurosurgical Tumor Treatment

    • Visual Clustering in Parallel Coordinates 

      Zhou, Hong; Yuan, Xiaoru; Qu, Huamin; Cui, Weiwei; Chen, Baoquan (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2008)
      Parallel coordinates have been widely applied to visualize high-dimensional and multivariate data, discerning patterns within the data through visual clustering. However, the effectiveness of this technique on large data ...
    • A Screen Space Quality Method for Data Abstraction 

      Johansson, Jimmy; Cooper, Matthew (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2008)
      The rendering of large data sets can result in cluttered displays and non-interactive update rates, leading to time consuming analyses. A straightforward solution is to reduce the number of items, thereby producing an ...
