      Krämer, Michel (2017-11-07)
      With the growing number of devices that can collect spatiotemporal information, as well as the improving quality of sensors, the geospatial data volume increases con- stantly. Before the raw collected data can be used, ...
    • Visual Analytics to Support Evidence-Based Decision Making 

      Ruppert, Tobias (TU Darmstadt (TUPrints), 2018)
      The aim of this thesis is the design of visual analytics solutions to support evidence-based decision making. Due to the ever-growing complexity of the world, strategical decision making has become an increasingly challenging ...
    • Smarter screen space shading 

      Nalbach, Oliver (2017-11-10)
      This dissertation introduces a range of new methods to produce images of virtual scenes in a matter of milliseconds. Imposing as few constraints as possible on the set of scenes that can be handled, e.g., regarding geometric ...
    • Realistic Visualization of Accessories within Interactive Simulation Systems for Garment Prototyping 

      Knuth, Martin (2017-03-03)
      In virtual garment prototyping, designers create a garment design by using Computer Aided Design (CAD). In difference to traditional CAD the word "aided" in this case refers to the computer replicating real world behavior ...
