  • MLMD: Multi-Layered Visualization for Multi-Dimensional Data 

    Yu, Bowen; Liu, Richen; Yuan, Xiaoru (The Eurographics Association, 2013)
    In this paper, we propose and implement a multi-layered visualization technique in 3D space called Multi-Layered Visualization for Multi-Dimensional Data (MLMD) with its corresponding interaction techniques, for visualizing ...
  • Total Euler Characteristic as a Noise Measure to aid Transfer Function Design 

    Wiemker, Rafael (The Eurographics Association, 2013)
    For image-based, semi- or fully automated design of transfer functions for direct volume rendering, it is beneficial to have an estimation of the noise level in the rendered image. A topology-motivated noise measure is ...
  • 3D Strokes on Visible Structures in Direct Volume Rendering 

    Wiebel, Alexander; Preis, Philipp; Vos, Frans M.; Hege, Hans-Christian (The Eurographics Association, 2013)
    In this paper we describe VisiTrace, a novel technique to draw 3D lines in direct volume rendered images. It allows to draw strokes in the 2D space of the screen to produce 3D lines that run on top or in the center of ...
  • Visits: A Spatiotemporal Visualization of Location Histories 

    Thudt, Alice; Baur, Dominikus; Carpendale, Sheelagh (The Eurographics Association, 2013)
    Location histories are rapidly becoming easily collectable and offer new opportunities for personal reminiscing. However, while location history data contains both temporal and location information, maps provide the location ...
  • Toward Wall Function Consistent Interpolation of Flow Fields 

    Üffinger, Markus; Sadlo, Filip; Munz, Claus-Dieter; Ertl, Thomas (The Eurographics Association, 2013)
    In this paper we provide a first step toward simulation-consistent visualization techniques. We focus on wall functions modeling near-wall flow in computational fluid dynamics (CFD) using the law of the wall. By integrating ...
  • Neighbor Embedding by Soft Kendall Correlation 

    Strickert, Marc; Hüllermeier, Eyke (The Eurographics Association, 2013)
    Correlation-based embedding of complex data relationships in a Euclidean space is studied. The proposed soft formulation of Kendall correlation allows for gradient-based optimization of scatter point neighborhood relationships ...
  • Extraction of Robust Voids and Pockets in Proteins 

    Sridharamurthy, Raghavendra; Doraiswamy, Harish; Patel, Siddharth; Varadarajan, Raghavan; Natarajan, Vijay (The Eurographics Association, 2013)
    Voids and pockets in a protein refer to empty spaces that are enclosed by the protein molecule. Existing methods to compute, measure, and visualize the voids and pockets in a protein molecule are sensitive to inaccuracies ...
  • Visualizing Contour Distributions in 2D Ensemble Data 

    Pfaffelmoser, Tobias; Westermann, Rüdiger (The Eurographics Association, 2013)
    Overlaid plots of iso-contours in individual members of a scalar ensemble field are a popular concept to visualize the data uncertainty. However, such plots do not allow inferring on the spatial cumulative probability ...
  • Illustrative Rendering of Vortex Cores 

    Shafii, Sohail; Obermaier, Harald; Kolá?, Václav; Hlawitschka, Mario; Garth, Christoph; Hamann, Bernd; Joy, Kenneth I. (The Eurographics Association, 2013)
    Vortices are features crucial for understanding transitional and turbulent flow fields, and have often been visualized using isosurfaces, hulls, and line-like structures. However, they have not been represented in a ...
  • Local Data Models for Probabilistic Transfer Function Design 

    Obermaier, Harald; Joy, Kenneth I. (The Eurographics Association, 2013)
    A central component of expressive volume rendering is the identification of tissue or material types and their respective boundaries. To perform appropriate data classification, transfer functions can be defined in ...
  • B:3D - Visualize Land-use Plans Interactively 

    Langbein, Max; Scheler, Inga; Ebert, Achim; Hagen, Hans (The Eurographics Association, 2013)
    In Europe, urban land-use plans only give a very abstract representation of possible building forms. Combined with a written statement describing all constraints, the so-called building code, architects have to start ...
  • Information Retrieval Perspective to Interactive Data Visualization 

    Peltonen, Jaakko; Sandholm, Max; Kaski, Samuel (The Eurographics Association, 2013)
    Dimensionality reduction for data visualization has recently been formulated as an information retrieval task with a well-defined objective function. The formulation was based on preserving similarity relationships defined ...
  • Trajectory Density Projection for Vector Field Visualization 

    Kuhn, Alexander; Lindow, Norbert; Günther, Tobias; Wiebel, Alexander; Theisel, Holger; Hege, Hans-Christian (The Eurographics Association, 2013)
    Trajectory visualization is an important tool to capture intrinsic characteristics of vector fields. However, often this class of geometric visualization suffers from visual clutter due to the number of curves that occlude ...
  • A Survey of Visualization Construction User Interfaces 

    Grammel, Lars; Bennett, Chris; Tory, Melanie; Storey, Margaret-Anne (The Eurographics Association, 2013)
    We have systematically surveyed the publications on visualization construction user interfaces that have been published in 12 major Visualization and HCI venues. We found six different visualization construction approaches ...
  • PointAO - Improved Ambient Occlusion for Point-based Visualization 

    Eichelbaum, Sebastian; Scheuermann, Gerik; Hlawitschka, Mario (The Eurographics Association, 2013)
    The visualization of large amounts of particles, glyphs, and other point-based data plays an important role in many fields of science, among them flow mechanics, molecular dynamics, and medical imaging. The proper perception ...
  • A Novel Radial Visualization Approach for Undirected Hypergraphs 

    Kerren, Andreas; Jusufi, Ilir (The Eurographics Association, 2013)
