  • Streaming and Data Enrichment 

    McDerby, Mary J.; Hewitt, William T.; Turner, Martin J. (The Eurographics Association, 2007)
    Data is being created at a continuously increasing rate. Scientists are drowning in their data . So much so they cannot visualize the data to see the big picture. This work-in-progress paper describes a data capture and ...
  • Level of Detail for Physically Based Fire 

    Gundersen, Odd Erik; Tangvald, Lars (The Eurographics Association, 2007)
    In this paper, we propose a framework for implementing level of detail for a physically based fire rendering running on the GPU. The physics of the fire is simulated using a fluid solver and combustion modelling, and the ...
  • A Case-Study of Inconsistent Surface Reconstruction in Recent Literature Resulting from Octree Rotation-Variance 

    Hughes, David Meirion; Lim, Ik Soo (The Eurographics Association, 2007)
    We review the use of octree and PCA (Principle Component Analysis) in current literature and explore a leading piece of research, as a case study, to highlight how overlooking octree rotation-variance has resulted in ...
  • Interval-Based Motion Blending for Hand Grasping 

    Brisbin, Matt; Benes, Bedrich (The Eurographics Association, 2007)
    For motion to appear realistic and believable proper motion blending methods must be used in respect to the goal or task at hand. We present a method that extends the theory of move trees [MBC01] by tagging (attaching) ...
  • Visualization Notations, Models and Taxonomies 

    Brodlie, Ken; Noor, Nurul Mohd (The Eurographics Association, 2007)
    Visualization taxonomies are an important means of imposing some structure on a rather diverse field. We review some earlier work in this area, particularly work based on the use of a notation to label classes of visualization ...
  • A Flexible Approach to High Performance Visualization Enabled Augmented Reality 

    Hughes, Chris J.; John, Nigel W. (The Eurographics Association, 2007)
    Commonly registration and tracking within Augmented Reality (AR) applications have been built around computer vision techniques that use limited bold markers, which allow for their orientation to be estimated in real-time. ...
  • Data Driven Graphical Applications: A Fluid Approach 

    Jones, A.; Mantle, C.; Cornford, D. (The Eurographics Association, 2007)
    The inclusion of high-level scripting functionality in state-of-the-art rendering APIs indicates a movement toward data-driven methodologies for structuring next generation rendering pipelines. A similar theme can be seen ...
  • Towards Individualized Ageing Functions for Human Face Images 

    Hunter, David W.; Tiddeman, Bernard P. (The Eurographics Association, 2007)
    We present an overview of work in progress to create ageing functions for the transformation of human face images. Our aims are twofold; Firstly, by extension to three dimensions, the problems of pose and lighting associated ...
  • Seamless Mesh Stitching Using Curve Approximation 

    Gobeawan, Like; Xu, Shuhong; Turner, Stephen John (The Eurographics Association, 2007)
    Stitching two mesh partitions at their boundaries poses some challenges, especially when a visually seamless result is desired. In general, direct stitching of mismatching mesh boundaries does not readily produce a seamless ...
  • Adaptive Infrastructure for Visual Computing 

    Brodlie, K. W.; Brooke, J.; Chen, M.; Chisnall, D.; Hughes, C. J.; John, Nigel W.; Jones, M. W.; Riding, M.; Roard, N.; Turner, M.; Wood, J. D. (The Eurographics Association, 2007)
    Recent hardware and software advances have demonstrated that it is now practicable to run large visual computing tasks over heterogeneous hardware with output on multiple types of display devices. As the complexity of the ...
  • A Novel Control Mechanism for Distributed Stream Rendering 

    O'Brien, J. T.; Kalawsky, R. S. (The Eurographics Association, 2007)
    This paper describes a new control mechanism for distributed rendering. Control mechanisms have previously been widely used in many fields from autonomous robots to video streaming. Their use in video streaming has allowed ...
