    Broersen, Alexander; Liere, Robert van; Heeren, Ron M. A. (The Eurographics Association, 2007)
    An imaging mass spectrometer is an analytical instrument that can determine the spatial distribution of chemical compounds on complex surfaces. The output of the device is a multi-spectral datacube; a three-dimensional ...
  • Visualization Methods for Vortex Rings and Vortex Breakdown Bubbles 

    Peikert, Ronald; Sadlo, Filip (The Eurographics Association, 2007)
    Vortex breakdown bubbles are a subject which is of interest in many disciplines such as aeronautics, mixing, and combustion. Existing visualization methods are based on stream surfaces, direct volume rendering, tensor field ...
  • Animation of Orthogonal Texture-Based Vector Field Visualization 

    Bachthaler, Sven; Weiskopf, Daniel (The Eurographics Association, 2007)
    This paper introduces orthogonal vector field visualization on 2D manifolds: a representation by lines that are perpendicular to the input vector field. Line patterns are generated by line integral convolution (LIC). This ...
  • Flexible And Topologically Localized Segmentation 

    Johansson, Gunnar; Museth, Ken; Carr, Hamish (The Eurographics Association, 2007)
    One of the most common visualization tasks is the extraction of significant boundaries, often performed with isosurfaces or level set segmentation. Isosurface extraction is simple and can be guided by geometric and topological ...
  • Segmentation of DT-MRI Anisotropy Isosurfaces 

    Schultz, Thomas; Theisel, Holger; Seidel, Hans-Peter (The Eurographics Association, 2007)
    While isosurfaces of anisotropy measures for data from diffusion tensor magnetic resonance imaging (DT-MRI) are known to depict major anatomical structures, the anisotropy metric reduces the rich tensor data to a simple ...
  • Feature Identification and Extraction in Function Fields 

    Anderson, John C.; Gosink, Luke J.; Duchaineau, Mark A.; Joy, Kenneth I. (The Eurographics Association, 2007)
    We present interactive techniques for identifying and extracting features in function fields. Function fields map points in n-dimensional Euclidean space to 1-dimensional scalar functions. Visual feature identification is ...
