  • 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 ...

    Xie, Jinrong; Yu, Hongfeng; Ma, Kwan-Liu (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2013)
    Geodesic grids are commonly used to model the surface of a sphere and are widely applied in numerical simulations of geoscience applications. These applications range from biodiversity, to climate change and to ocean ...
  • 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 ...
  • ViviSection: Skeleton-based Volume Editing

    Volume segmentation is important in many applications, particularly in the medical domain. Most segmentation techniques, however, work fully automatically only in very restricted scenarios and cumbersome manual editing of ...
  • ExPlates: Spatializing Interactive Analysis to Scaffold Visual Exploration 

    Javed, Waqas; Elmqvist, Niklas (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2013)
    Visual exploration involves using visual representations to investigate data where the goals of the process are unclear and poorly defined. However, this often places unduly high cognitive load on the user, particularly ...
  • Visual Explanation of the Complexity in Julia Sets 

    Schrijvers, Okke; Wijk, Jarke J. van (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2013)
    Julia sets based on quadratic polynomials have a very simple definition, yet a highly intricate shape. Our contribution is to provide a visual explanation for this complexity. To this end we show the construction of Julia ...
  • An Information-Theoretic Observation Channel for Volume Visualization 

    Bramon, Roger; Ruiz, Marc; Bardera, Anton; Boada, Imma; Feixas, Miquel; Sbert, Mateu (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2013)
    Different quality metrics have been proposed in the literature to evaluate how well a visualization represents the underlying data. In this paper, we present a new information-theoretic framework that quantifies the ...
  • imMens: Real-time Visual Querying of Big Data 

    Liu, Zhicheng; Jiang, Biye; Heer, Jeffrey (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2013)
    Data analysts must make sense of increasingly large data sets, sometimes with billions or more records.We present methods for interactive visualization of big data, following the principle that perceptual and interactive ...
  • 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 ...
  • Augmenting Visualization with Natural Language Translation of Interaction: A Usability Study 

    Nafari, Maryam; Weaver, Chris (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2013)
    As visualization tools get more complicated, users often find it increasingly difficult to learn interaction sequences, recall past queries, and interpret visual states.We examine a query-to-question (Q2Q) supporting system ...
  • Rule-based Visual Mappings - with a Case Study on Poetry Visualization 

    Abdul-Rahman, Alfie; Lein, Julie; Coles, Katharine; Maguire, Eamonn; Meyer, Miriah; Wynne, Martin; Johnson, Chris R.; Trefethen, Anne; Chen, Min (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2013)
    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 ...
  • Fingerprint Matrices: Uncovering the Dynamics of Social Networks in Prose Literature 

    Oelke, Daniela; Kokkinakis, Dimitrios; Keim, Daniel A. (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2013)
    In prose literature often complex dynamics of interpersonal relationships can be observed between the different characters. Traditionally, node-link diagrams are used to depict the social network of a novel. However, static ...
  • dPSO-Vis: Topology-based Visualization of Discrete Particle Swarm Optimization 

    Volke, Sebastian; Middendorf, Martin; Hlawitschka, Mario; Kasten, Jens; Zeckzer, Dirk; Scheuermann, Gerik (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2013)
    Particle swarm optimization (PSO) is a metaheuristic that has been applied successfully to many continuous and combinatorial optimization problems, e.g., in the fields of economics, engineering, and natural sciences. In ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • Interactive Extraction and Tracking of Biomolecular Surfaces Features 

    Krone, Michael; Reina, Guido; Schulz, Christoph; Kulschewski, Tobias; Pleiss, Jürgen; Ertl, Thomas (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2013)

  • 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 ...
  • Visualizing Motional Correlations in Molecular Dynamics using Geometric Deformations 

    Fioravante, Matthew; Shook, Adam; Thorpe, Ian; Rheingans, Penny (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2013)
    In macromolecules, an allosteric effect is said to occur when a change at one site of a molecule affects a distant site. Understanding these allosteric effects can be important for understanding how the functions of complex ...
  • Continuous Representation of Projected Attribute Spaces of Multifields over Any Spatial Sampling 

    Molchanov, Vladimir; Fofonov, Alexey; Linsen, Lars (The Eurographics Association and Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2013)
    For the visual analysis of multidimensional data, dimension reduction methods are commonly used to project to a lower-dimensional visual space. In the context of multifields, i.e., volume data with a multidimensional ...
