    • A Primal/ Dual Representation for Discrete Morse Complexes on Tetrahedral Meshes 

      Weiss, Kenneth; Iuricich, Federico; Fellegara, Riccardo; Floriani, Leila De (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2013)
      We consider the problem of computing discrete Morse and Morse-Smale complexes on an unstructured tetrahedral mesh discretizing the domain of a 3D scalar field. We use a duality argument to define the cells of the descending ...
    • Progressive High-Quality Response Surfaces for Visually Guided Sensitivity Analysis

      In this paper, we present a user-centered design study on poetry visualization. We develop a rule-based solution to address the conflicting needs for maintaining the flexibility of visualizing a large set of poetic variables ...
    • Scale-Stack Bar Charts 

      Hlawatsch, Marcel; Sadlo, Filip; Burch, Michael; Weiskopf, Daniel (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2013)
      It is difficult to create appropriate bar charts for data that cover large value ranges. The usual approach for these cases employs a logarithmic scale, which, however, suffers from issues inherent to its non-linear mapping: ...
    • Selecting Semantically-Resonant Colors for Data Visualization 

      Lin, Sharon; Fortuna, Julie; Kulkarni, Chinmay; Stone, Maureen; Heer, Jeffrey (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2013)
      We introduce an algorithm for automatic selection of semantically-resonant colors to represent data (e.g., using blue for data about ''oceans'', or pink for ''love''). Given a set of categorical values and a target color ...
    • Small Multiples, Large Singles: A New Approach for Visual Data Exploration 

      Elzen, Stef van den; Wijk, Jarke J. van (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2013)
      We present a novel visual exploration method based on small multiples and large singles for effective and efficient data analysis. Users are enabled to explore the state space by offering multiple alternatives from the ...
    • Spatially Efficient Design of Annotated Metro Maps 

      Wu, Hsiang-Yun; Takahashi, Shigeo; Hirono, Daichi; Arikawa, Masatoshi; Lin, Chun-Cheng; Yen, Hsu-Chun (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2013)
      Annotating metro maps with thumbnail photographs is a commonly used technique for guiding travelers. However, conventional methods usually suffer from small labeling space around the metro stations, especially when they ...
    • Streamlines for Illustrative Real-Time Rendering 

      Lawonn, Kai; Moench, Tobias; Preim, Bernhard (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2013)
      Line drawing techniques are important methods to illustrate shapes. Existing feature line methods, e.g., suggestive contours, apparent ridges, or photic extremum lines, solely determine salient regions and illustrate them ...
    • Synthetic Brainbows 

      Wan, Yong; Otsuna, Hideo; Hansen, Charles (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2013)
      Brainbow is a genetic engineering technique that randomly colorizes cells. Biological samples processed with this technique and imaged with confocal microscopy have distinctive colors for individual cells. Complex cellular ...
    • TAMRESH - Tensor Approximation Multiresolution Hierarchy for Interactive Volume Visualization 

      Suter, Susanne K.; Makhynia, Maxim; Pajarola, Renato (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2013)
      Interactive visual analysis of large and complex volume datasets is an ongoing and challenging problem. We tackle this challenge in the context of state-of-the-art out-of-core multiresolution volume rendering by introducing ...
    • Towards High-dimensional Data Analysis in Air Quality Research 

      Engel, Daniel; Hummel, Mathias; Hoepel, Florian; Bein, Keith; Wexler, Anthony; Garth, Christoph; Hamann, Bernd; Hagen, Hans (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2013)
      Analysis of chemical constituents from mass spectrometry of aerosols involves non-negative matrix factorization, an approximation of high-dimensional data in lower-dimensional space. The associated optimization problem is ...
    • Towards Multifield Scalar Topology Based on Pareto Optimality 

      Huettenberger, Lars; Heine, Christian; Carr, Hamish; Scheuermann, Gerik; Garth, Christoph (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2013)
      How can the notion of topological structures for single scalar fields be extended to multifields? In this paper we propose a definition for such structures using the concepts of Pareto optimality and Pareto dominance. Given ...
    • TrajectoryLenses - A Set-based Filtering and Exploration Technique for Long-term Trajectory Data 

      Krüger, Robert; Thom, Dennis; Wörner, Michael; Bosch, Harald; Ertl, Thomas (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2013)
      The visual analysis of spatiotemporal movement is a challenging task. There may be millions of routes of different length and shape with different origin and destination, extending over a long time span. Furthermore there ...
