    • A Four-level Focus + Context Approach to Interactive Visual Analysis of Temporal Features in Large Scientific Data 

      Muigg, Philipp; Kehrer, Johannes; Oeltze, Steffen; Piringer, Harald; Doleisch, Helmut; Preim, Bernhard; Hauser, Helwig (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2008)
      In this paper we present a new approach to the interactive visual analysis of time-dependent scientific data - both from measurements as well as from computational simulation - by visualizing a scalar function over time ...
    • Animating Causal Overlays 

      Bartram, Lyn; Yao, Miao (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2008)
      Most approaches to representing causality, such as the common causal graph, require a separate and static view, but in many cases it is useful to add the dimension of causality to the context of an existing visualization. ...
    • Particle Level Set Advection for the Interactive Visualization of Unsteady 3D Flow 

      Cuntz, Nicolas; Kolb, Andreas; Strzodka, Robert; Weiskopf, Daniel (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2008)
      Typically, flow volumes are visualized by defining their boundary as iso-surface of a level set function. Grid-based level sets offer a good global representation but suffer from numerical diffusion of surface detail, ...
    • Extraction Of Feature Lines On Surface Meshes Based On Discrete Morse Theory 

      Sahner, Jan; Weber, Britta; Prohaska, Steffen; Lamecker, Hans (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2008)
      We present an approach for extracting extremal feature lines of scalar indicators on surface meshes, based on discrete Morse Theory. By computing initial Morse-Smale complexes of the scalar indicators of the mesh, we obtain ...
    • Physically-based Dye Advection for Flow Visualization 

      Li, Guo-Shi; Tricoche, Xavier; Hansen, Charles (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2008)
      Dye advection is widely used in experimental flow analysis but has seen less use for visualization in computational fluid dynamics. One possible reason for this disconnect is the inaccuracy of the texture-based approach, ...
    • Visual Comparison of Hierarchically Organized Data 

      Holten, Danny; Wijk, Jarke J. van (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2008)
      We provide a novel visualization method for the comparison of hierarchically organized data. Our technique visualizes a pair of hierarchies that are to be compared and simultaneously depicts how these hierarchies are related ...
    • Quality Isosurface Mesh Generation Using an Extended Marching Cubes Lookup Table

    • Virtual Klingler Dissection: Putting Fibers into Context 

      Schultz, Thomas; Sauber, Natascha; Anwander, Alfred; Theisel, Holger; Seidel, Hans-Peter (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2008)
      Fiber tracking is a standard tool to estimate the course of major white matter tracts from diffusion tensor magnetic resonance imaging (DT-MRI) data. In this work, we aim at supporting the visual analysis of classical ...
    • Abstractive Representation and Exploration of Hierarchically Clustered Diffusion Tensor Fiber Tracts 

      Chen, Wei; Zhang, Song; Correia, Stephen; Ebert, David S. (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2008)
      Diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) has been used to generate fibrous structures in both brain white matter and muscles. Fiber clustering groups the DTI fibers into spatially and anatomically related tracts. As an increasing ...
    • Classification and Uncertainty Visualization of Dendritic Spines from Optical Microscopy Imaging 

      Janoos, Firdaus; Nouansengsy, Boonthanome; Xu, Xiaoyin; Machiraju, Raghu; Wong, Stephen T. C. (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2008)
      Abstract Neuronal dendrites and their spines affect the connectivity of neural networks, and play a significant role in many neurological conditions. Neuronal function is observed to be closely correlated with the appearance, ...
    • GPU Local Triangulation: an Interpolating Surface Reconstruction Algorithm 

      Buchart, Carlos; Borro, Diego; Amundarain, Aiert (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2008)
      A GPU capable method for surface reconstruction from unorganized point clouds without additional information, called GLT (GPU Local Triangulation), is presented. The main objective of this research is the generation of a ...
    • TimeRadarTrees: Visualizing Dynamic Compound Digraphs 

      Burch, Michael; Diehl, Stephan (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2008)
      The evolution of dependencies in information hierarchies can be modeled by sequences of compound digraphs with edge weights. In this paper we present a novel approach to visualize such sequences of graphs. It uses radial ...
    • Geometry-driven Visualization of Microscopic Structures in Biology 

      Mosaliganti, Kishore; Machiraju, Raghu; Huang, Kun; Leone, Gustavo (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2008)
      At a microscopic resolution, biological structures are composed of cells, red blood corpuscles (RBCs), cytoplasm and other microstructural components. There is a natural pattern in terms of distribution, arrangement and ...
    • Exploratory Visualization of Animal Kinematics Using Instantaneous Helical Axes 

      Keefe, Daniel F.; O'Brien, Trevor M.; Baier, David B.; Gatesy, Stephen M.; Brainerd, Elizabeth L.; Laidlaw, David H. (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2008)
      We present novel visual and interactive techniques for exploratory visualization of animal kinematics using instantaneous helical axes (IHAs). The helical axis has been used in orthopedics, biomechanics, and structural ...
    • Illustrative Hybrid Visualization and Exploration of Anatomical and Functional Brain Data 

      Jainek, Werner M.; Born, Silvia; Bartz, Dirk; Straßer, Wolfgang; Fischer, Jan (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2008)
      Common practice in brain research and brain surgery involves the multi-modal acquisition of brain anatomy and brain activation data. These highly complex three-dimensional data have to be displayed simultaneously in order ...
    • Visualizing Genome Expression and Regulatory Network Dynamics in Genomic and Metabolic Context 

      Westenberg, Michel A.; Hijum, S. A. F. T. van; Kuipers, O. P.; Roerdink, Jos B. T. M. (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2008)
      DNA microarrays are used to measure the expression levels of thousands of genes simultaneously. In a time series experiment, the gene expressions are measured as a function of time. We present an application for integrated ...
