Recent Submissions

  • Intuitive Colormaps for Environmental Visualization 

    Samsel, Francesca; Turton, Terece L.; Wolfram, Philip; Bujack, Roxana (The Eurographics Association, 2017)
    Visualizations benefit from the use of intuitive colors, enabling an observer to make use of more automatic, subconscious channels. In this paper, we apply the concept of intuitive color association to the generation of ...
  • Extracting, Visualizing and Tracking Mesoscale Ocean Eddies in Two-dimensional Image Sequences Using Contours and Moments 

    Banesh, Divya; Schoonover, Joseph A.; Ahrens, James P.; Hamann, Bernd (The Eurographics Association, 2017)
    We introduce a system to extract and track mesoscale eddies captured in massive global ocean simulations. The major strength and contribution of our system is its design, which is based on two-dimensional image data ...
  • Video Compression for Ocean Simulation Image Databases 

    Berres, Anne S.; Turton, Terece L.; Petersen, Mark; Rogers, David H.; Ahrens, James P. (The Eurographics Association, 2017)
    Climate research requires monitoring a large range of spatial and temporal scales to understand the climate system and potential future impacts. Climate simulations are now run with very high resolution (1-10 km gridcells) ...
  • STOAViz: Visualizing Saturated Thickness of Ogallala Aquifer 

    Dang, Tommy; Nguyen, Long Hoang; Karim, Abdullah; Uddameri, Venki (The Eurographics Association, 2017)
    In this paper, we introduce STOAViz, a visual analytics tool for analyzing the saturated thickness of the Ogallala aquifer. The saturated thicknesses are monitored by sensors integrated on wells distributed on a vast ...
  • Multivariate Visualization of Oceanography Data Using Decals 

    Rocha, Allan; Silva, Julio Daniel; Alim, Usman; Sousa, Mario Costa (The Eurographics Association, 2017)
    In this paper, we present our results on the 2016 Compute Canada Visualization Contest, which centers around the visualization of multiple oceanographic data attributes. Our goal is to help researchers better understand ...
  • Visual Eddy Analysis of the Agulhas Current 

    Raith, Felix; Röber, Niklas; Haak, Helmuth; Scheuermann, Gerik (The Eurographics Association, 2017)
    Large mesoscale eddies in the ocean can transport a substantial amount of heat and salt over large distances. Using highresolution ICON ocean simulation data, it is possible to detect and track eddies in the ocean and ...
  • Visual Study of the Benguela Upwelling System using Pathline Predicates 

    Nardini, Pascal; Böttinger, Michael; Scheuermann, Gerik; Schmidt, Martin (The Eurographics Association, 2017)
    Due to the nutrient-rich water transported to the upper layer of the ocean, coastal upwelling systems are regions especially important for marine life and fishery. In this work, we focus on a visual analysis of the ...
  • An InteractiveWeb-based Doppler Wind Lidar Visualisation System 

    Jerome, Nicholas Tan; Chilingaryan, Suren; Kopmann, Andreas; Wieser, Andreas (The Eurographics Association, 2017)
    With Doppler wind lidar producing significant amounts of data, providing means to extract relevant information from the data that describes atmospheric phenomena such as rain and low-level clouds is of vital importance. ...
  • Setting up Virtual Geographic Environments in Unity 

    Rink, Karsten; Bilke, Lars; Kolditz, Olaf (The Eurographics Association, 2017)
    We propose a setup for presenting complex heterogenous environmental data in a Virtual Reality environment. After a number of pre-processing steps required to integrate various data sets in a unified context, our workflow ...
  • Visual Characterisation of Temporal Occupancy for Movement Ecology 

    Slingsby, Aidan; Loon, Emiel van (The Eurographics Association, 2017)
    Movement ecologists study aspects of animals' movement, behaviour, and the factors that might drive these. Temporal patterns of local occupancy often reveal the type of usage at a location. We present and apply temporal ...
  • EnVirVis 2017: Frontmatter 

    Rink, Karsten; Middel, Ariane; Zeckzer, Dirk; Bujack, Roxana (Eurographics Association, 2017)
