    Java 3D is a new cross-platform API for developing 3D graphics applications in Java. Java 3D’s feature set has been designed to enable quick development of complex 3D applications, and at the same time enable fast and ...
  • Introduction to VRML 97 

    Nadeau, D. R. (Eurographics Association, 1998)
    VRML (the Virtual Reality Modeling Language) is an international standard for describing 3-D shapes and scenery on the World Wide Web. VRML’s technology has very broad applicability, including web-based entertainment, ...
  • Advanced Application of Volume Visualization Methods in Medicine 

    Sakas, G.; Pommert, A. (Eurographics Association, 1998)
    Tomographic medical imaging techniques have become more popular in recent years. The wide availability of CT, MRI and Ultrasound in most large hospitals results in a rapidly increasing number of examinations with these ...
  • Rendering and Visualization in Affordable Parallel Environments 

    Bartz, Dirk; Silva, Claudio; Schneider, Bengt-Olaf (Eurographics Association, 1998)
    The scope of this full-day tutorial is the use of low and medium-cost parallel environments (less than US $ 60K) for high-speed rendering and visualization. In particular, our focus is on the parallel graphics programming ...
  • State of the Art in Perceptually Driven Radiosity 

    Prikryl, J.; Purgathofer, W. (Eurographics Association, 1998)
    Despite its popularity among researchers the radiosity method still suffers of some disadvantages over other global illumination methods. Besides the fact that the original method allows only for solving the global ...
  • Multidimensional free-form deformation tools 

    Bechmann, D. (Eurographics Association, 1998)
    A survey of free-form deformation tools where the deformation is controlled by manipulating a 0-D to 3-D tool. Characteristics of a model that includes all these and generalises the concept will be presented.
  • A Standard for Multimedia Middleware 

    Duke, D.J.; Herman, I. (Eurographics Association, 1998)
    Hardware, software, and coding standards for digital media have played a significant role in making multimedia presentation an intrinsic compponent of many systems. However, these standards are primarily concerned with the ...
  • Distributed Cooperative Visualization 

    Brodlie, K.W.; Duce, D.A.; Gallop, J.R.; Wood, J.D. (Eurographics Association, 1998)
    Visualization is essentially a collaborative activity, widely used in many scientific and engineering disciplines. Visualization may be used to convey insight into phenomena that are well-understood, or to present new data ...
  • Overview of Parallel Photo-realistic Graphics 

    Reinhard, E.; Chalmers, A.G.; Jansen, F.W. (Eurographics Association, 1998)
    Global illumination is an area of research which tries to develop algorithms and methods to render images of artificial models or worlds as realistically as possible. Such algorithms are known for their unpredictable data ...
  • Interpolation and Approximation of Surfaces from Three-Dimensional Scattered Data Points 

    Mencl, R.; Möller, H. (Eurographics Association, 1998)
    There is a wide range of applications for which surface interpolation or approximation from scattered data points in space is important. Dependent on the field of application and the related properties of the data, many ...
  • Motion Reparametrization 

    da Silva, F.W.; Velho, L.; Gomes, J. (Eurographics Association, 1998)
    This paper presents an algorithm for reparametrization of 1D signals in the discrete domain, according to a userdefined velocity function. The application outlined in this work is the reparametrization of joint curves ...
  • A Faster Algorithm for 3D Discrete Lines 

    Boyer, V.; Bourdin, J. J. (Eurographics Association, 1998)
  • Navigation through Virtual 3D Worlds for Facilitating Childrens Spatial Orientation 

    Volbracht, S.; Domik, G. (Eurographics Association, 1998)
    Spatial orientation is an important ability which should be encouraged in geometry courses of elementary schools. A preferred approach (in Germany) typically involves navigation and wayfinding tasks with pictures of a town ...
  • Using constraints to describe high-level behaviours in virtual worlds 

    Richard, N.; Codognet, P.; Grumbach, A. (Eurographics Association, 1998)
    Our aim is to make the authoring of virtual worlds easier for non-specialists, in particular when programming pseudo-intelligent agents within virtual environments.We are designing a high-level language as well as a library ...
  • Virtual Sewing System for Apparel Design 

    Soo Suh, Y.; Endou, Y.; Gotoh, D.; Kiyota, A.; Okabe, H.; Niwaya, H.; Shigeru, I. (Eurographics Association, 1998)
    An apparel CAD system capable of 3D simulation of clothes is reported. The system works on personal computers, has graphical user interface and requires minimal input to indicate how to sew and put on the dress. The system ...
  • Agents in multi-user virtual environments 

    Paul, Christian; Peters, Ralph; Graeff, Andreas (Eurographics Association, 1998)
    In this paper,we introduce the use of agents in combinationwith virtual realities as one possibility to enhancefuture communication systems.These agents support the user and his/her interactionwith objects within the virtual ...
  • Reconstruction of 3D colored Data 

    Nullans, S.; Boissonnat, J.D. (Eurographics Association, 1998)
  • A Semi-empirical Model for the Representation of Materials in Photorealistic Rendering 

    Hansmann, W.; Warncke, H. (Eurographics Association, 1998)
    From the beginning of Computer Graphics various models intended to describe the optical properties of different materials have been proposed. Some of these models are purely empirical [1]. Others are very close to physics ...
