      Philip, Sujin; Summa, Brian; Tierny, Julien; Bremer, Peer-Timo; Pascucci, Valerio (The Eurographics Association, 2013)
      Gigapixel panoramas are an increasingly popular digital image application. They are often created as a mosaic of smaller images composited into a larger single image. The mosaic acquisition can occur over many hours causing ...
    • Scalable Sort-First Parallel Direct Volume Rendering with Dynamic Load Balancing

      Biswas, Ayan; Strelitz, Richard; Woodring, Jonathan; Chen, Chun-Ming; Shen, Han-Wei (The Eurographics Association, 2016)
      Streamlines are commonly used for visualizing flow fields, but particle-tracing based streamline computation usually does not scale well as the data size and complexity increase. Large flow simulations like global ocean ...
