  • A Mobile Augmented Reality System to Enjoy the Sagrada Familia 

    Gimeno-Sancho, Jesus; Pardo-Carpia, Fernando; Morillo-Tena, Pedro; Fernández-Marin, Marcos (The Eurographics Association, 2010)
    SAFAR is a mobile Augmented Reality application that makes possible to see in real-time the Sagrada Familia as it will look like when it be finished. The application successfully integrates outdoor tracking and 3D rendering ...
  • In-Situ 3D Sketching Using a Video Camera as an Interaction and Tracking Device 

    Simon, Gilles (The Eurographics Association, 2010)
    In this paper, we present a novel method for in-situ 3D sketching of polyhedral scenes. A video camera is used as both an interaction and a tracking device, which makes the system particularly suitable for handheld devices ...
  • Ad-Hoc Multi-Displays for Mobile Interactive Applications 

    Schmitz, Arne; Li, Ming; Schönefeld, Volker; Kobbelt, Leif (The Eurographics Association, 2010)
    We present a framework which enables the combination of different mobile devices into one multi-display such that visual content can be shown on a larger area consisting, e.g., of several mobile phones placed arbitrarily ...
  • Visualizing Climate Change: the Potential of Dome Presentations as a Tool for Climate Communication 

    Neset, Tina-Simone S.; Wibeck, Victoria; Uhrqvist, Ola; Johansson, Jimmy (The Eurographics Association, 2010)
    This study presents the outline of a climate visualization programme directed to various target groups that was presented in a dome environment. The efforts of climate and visualization researchers to jointly develop ...
  • Uniview - Visualizing the Universe 

    Klashed, Staffan; Hemingsson, Per; Emmart, Carter; Cooper, Matthew; Ynnerman, Anders (The Eurographics Association, 2010)
    This paper describes the development of the software system, Uniview, the motivation behind some of the most prominent features of the system and the strengths and challenges of running a development project in such close ...
  • DomeView: A Tool for Digital Planetariums 

    Silva, M. A.; Fernandes, António Ramires; Pedrosa, A. (The Eurographics Association, 2010)
    The content produced for fulldome projection is usually made in a frame (the master) with a format corresponding to a projection of the dome on a plane, commonly the fisheye projection. Due to the distortions involved, ...
  • Towards an Academic Praxis for Domed Virtual Environments 

    Carss, Peter (The Eurographics Association, 2010)
    This paper sets out the current state of activities for the domed virtual environment located within the University of Plymouth, UK. Some of these activities have arisen through reactions to demands on the dome. Some, ...
  • Interactive 3D Stereoscopic Dome with Automatic Calibration 

    Dingeldey, Felix; Schiewe, Manuel; Gerhardt, Jérémie; Ahlers, Kay-Ingo; Haulsen, Ivo (The Eurographics Association, 2010)
    In recent years, the advances in projection technology and the increasing rendering capacity of modern computers allowed the development of immersive digital domes. Digital dome systems are not limited to planetariums, but ...
  • Progress in Rendering and Modeling for Digital Planetariums 

    Magnor, Marcus; Sen, Pradeep; Kniss, Joe; Angel, Edward; Wenger, Stephan (The Eurographics Association, 2010)
    Contemporary challenges in the production of digital planetarium shows include real-time rendering realism as well as the creation of authentic content. While interactive, live performance is a standard feature of professional ...
