    Co, Christopher S.; Porumbescu, Serban D.; Joy, Kenneth I. (The Eurographics Association, 2004)
    We propose a meshless method for the extraction of high-quality continuous isosurfaces from volumetric data represented by multiple grids, also called "multiblock" data sets. Multiblock data sets are commonplace in ...
  • Efficient Isosurface Tracking Using Precomputed Correspondence Table

  • Medical Applications of Multi-Field Volume Rendering and VR Techniques 

    Kniss, Joe; Schulze, Jürgen P.; Wössner, Uwe; Winkler, Peter; Lang, Ulrich; Hansen, Charles (The Eurographics Association, 2004)
    This paper reports on a new approach for visualizing multi-field MRI or CT datasets in an immersive environment with medical applications. Multi-field datasets combine multiple scanning modalities into a single 3D, ...
  • Occlusion Culling for Sub-Surface Models in Geo-Scientific Applications 

    Plate, John; Grundhoefer, Anselm; Schmidt, Benjamin; Froehlich, und Bernd (The Eurographics Association, 2004)
    Modern graphics cards support occlusion culling in hardware. We present a three pass algorithm, which makes efficient use of this feature. Our geo-scientific sub-surface data sets consist typically of a set of high resolution ...
  • Interactive High Quality Trimmed NURBS Visualization Using Appearance Preserving Tessellation 

    Guthe, M.; Balázs, Á.; Klein, R. (The Eurographics Association, 2004)
    Trimmed NURBS models are the standard representation used in CAD/CAM systems and accurate visualization of large trimmed NURBS models at interactive frame rates is of great interest for industry. To visualize the quality ...
  • Browsing and Visualizing Digital Bibliographic Data 

    Klink, Stefan; Ley, Michael; Rabbidge, Emma; Reuther, Patrick; Walter, Bernd; Weber, Alexander (The Eurographics Association, 2004)
    Access to publications is provided by conventional libraries, digital libraries operated by learned societies or commercial publishers, and a huge number of web sites maintained by the scientists themselves or their ...
  • Generalized Distance Transforms and Skeletons in Graphics Hardware 

    Strzodka, R.; Telea, A. (The Eurographics Association, 2004)
    We present a framework for computing generalized distance transforms and skeletons of two-dimensional objects using graphics hardware. Our method is based on the concept of footprint splatting. Combining different splats ...
  • Visualization of Cardio-CT Data on Standard PC Hardware 

    Bauer, Michael (The Eurographics Association, 2004)
    In the last years, texture based volume rendering on the PC platform has proven very successful. Many methods that could formerly only be done with software renderers can now be done completely by the graphics hardware. ...
  • A Botanically Inspired High-Dimensional Visualization with Multivariate Glyphs 

    Chlan, E. B.; Rheingans, Penny (The Eurographics Association, 2004)
    It is difficult for the average viewer to assimilate and comprehend huge amounts of high-dimensional data. It is important to present data in a way that allows the user a high level understanding of the overall organization ...
  • Ray Casting Curved-Quadratic Elements 

    Wiley, D. F.; Childs, H. R.; Hamann, B.; Joy, K. I. (The Eurographics Association, 2004)
    We present a method for ray casting curved-quadratic elements in 3D. The advantages of this approach is that a curved element can be directly visualized. Conventionally, higher-order elements are tessellated with several ...
  • Boundary Switch Connectors for Topological Visualization of Complex 3D Vector Fields 

    Weinkauf, T.; Theisel, H.; Hege, H.-C.; Seidel, H.-P. (The Eurographics Association, 2004)
    One of the reasons that topological methods have a limited popularity for the visualization of complex 3D flow fields is the fact that their topological structures contain a number of separating stream surfaces. Since these ...
