  • Where Weather Meets the Eye - A Case Study on a Wide Range of Meteorological Visualizations for Diverse Audiences 

    Haase, H.; Bock, M.; Hergenröther, E.; Knöpfle, C.; Koppert, H.-J.; Schröder, F.; Trembilski, A.; Weidenhausen, J. (Springer and The Eurographics Association, 1999)
    Sophisticated visualisation enables experts as well as lay persons to extract knowledge from complex data. This is particularly true for visualising the massive amounts of data involved in meteorological observations and ...
  • 2D Vector Field Visualization Using Furlike Texture 

    Khouas, Leila; Odet, Christophe; Friboulet, Denis (Springer and The Eurographics Association, 1999)
    This paper presents a new technique for 2D vector field visualization. Our approach is based on the use of a furlike texture. For this purpose, we have first developed a texture model that allows two dimensional synthesis ...
  • A Methodology for Comparing Direct Volume Rendering Algorithms Using a Projection-Based Data Level Approach 

    Kim, Kwansik; Pang, Alex (Springer and The Eurographics Association, 1999)
    Identifying and visualizing uncertainty together with the data is a well recognized problem. One of the culprits that introduce uncertainty in the visualization pipeline is the visualization algorithm itself. Uncertainties ...
  • New Approaches for Particle Tracing on Sparse Grids 

    Teitzel, Christian; Ertl, Thomas (Springer and The Eurographics Association, 1999)
    Flow visualization tools based on particle methods continue to be an important utility of flow simulation. Additionally, sparse grids are of increasing interest in numerical simulations. In [14] we presented the advontages ...
  • Parallel Multipipe Rendering for Very Large Isosurface Visualization 

    Udeshi, Tushar; Hansen, Charles D. (Springer and The Eurographics Association, 1999)
    In exploratory scientific visualization, isosurfaces are typi- cally created with an explicit polygonal representation for the surface using a technique such as Marching Cubes. For even moderate data sets, Marchching Cubes ...
  • Parallel Ray Casting of Visible Human on Distributed Memory Architectures 

    Bajaj, Chandrajit; Ihm, Insung; Koo, Gee-bum; Park, Sanghun (Springer and The Eurographics Association, 1999)
    This paper proposes a new parallel ray-casting scheme for very large volume data on distributed-memory architectures. Our method, based on data compression, attempts to enhance the speedup of parallel rendering by quickly ...
  • On Simulated Annealing and the Construction of Linear Spline Approximations for Scattered Data 

    Kreylos, Oliver; Hamann, Bernd (Springer and The Eurographics Association, 1999)
    We describe a method to create optimal linear spline approximations to arbitrary functions of one or two variables, given as scattered data without known connectivity.We start with an initial approximation consisting of a ...
  • Procedural Shape Generation for Multi-dimensional Data Visualization 

    Ebert, David S.; Rohrer, Randall M.; Shaw, Christopher D.; Panda, Pradyut; Kulda, James M.; Roberts, D. Aaron (Springer and The Eurographics Association, 1999)
    Visualization of multi-dimensional data is a challenging task. The goal is not the display of multiple data dimensions, but user comprehension of the multi-dimensional data. This paper explores several techniques for ...
  • Real-Time Maximum Intensity Projection 

    Mroz, Lukas; König, Andreas; Gröller, Eduard (Springer and The Eurographics Association, 1999)
    Maximum Intensity Projection (MIP) is a volume rendering technique which is used to extract high-intensity structures from volumetric data. At each pixel the highest data value encountered along the corresponding viewing ...
  • Visualization of Grinding Processes 

    Fiege, Markus; Scheuermann, Gerik; Münchhofen, Michael; Hagen, Hans (Springer and The Eurographics Association, 1999)
    In grinding technology, the application ofsupcrabrasivcs and increasing demands for higher productivity and higher quality require an appropriate selection of optimum set-up parameters. An efficient way to determine and ...
  • VISSION: An Object Oriented Dataflow System for Simulation and Visualization 

    Telea, Alexandru; Wijk, Jarke J. van (Springer and The Eurographics Association, 1999)
    Scientific visualization and simulation speciification and monitoring are sometimes addressed by object-oriented environments. Even though object orientation powerfully and elegantly models many application domains, ...
  • Visualization of Molecules with Positional Uncertainty 

    Rheingans, Penny; Joshi, Shrikant (Springer and The Eurographics Association, 1999)
    Designing new and better chemotherapeutic wmpounds requires an understanding of the mechanism by which the drugs exert their biological effects. This involves consideration of the geometry of the active site, determination ...
  • VIVENDI - A Virtual Endoscopy System for Virtual Medicine 

    Bartz, Dirk; Skalej, Martin (Springer and The Eurographics Association, 1999)
    Virtual Medicine is an emerging and challenging field in Computer Graphics. Numerous visualization methods are used to model and render data of different modalities. In this paper, we present a new endoscopy system for ...
  • Visualization by Examples: Mapping Data to Visual Representations using Few Correspondences 

    Alexa, Marc; Müller, Wolfgang (Springer and The Eurographics Association, 1999)

  • Visualization of Global Flow Structures Using Multiple Levels of Topology 

    Leeuw, Wim de; Liere, Robert van (Springer and The Eurographics Association, 1999)
    The technique for visualizing topological information in fluid flows is well known. However, when the technique is used in complex and information rich data sets, the result will be a cluttered image which is difficult to ...
  • Skeletal Images as Visual Cues in Graph Visualization 

    Herman, I.; Marshall, M.S.; Melancon, G.; Duke, D.J.; Delest, M.; Domenger, J.-P. (Springer and The Eurographics Association, 1999)
    The problem of graph layout and drawing is fundamental to many approaches to the visualization of relational information structures. As the data set grows, the visualization problem is compounded by the need to reconcile ...
  • Interactive Direct Volume Rendering of Time-Varying Data 

    Clyne, John; Dennis, John M. (Springer and The Eurographics Association, 1999)
    Previous efforts aimed at improving direct volume rendering performance have focused largely on time-invariant, 3D data. Little work has been done in the area of interactive direct volume rendering of timevarying data, ...
  • Efficient Ray Intersection for Visualization and Navigation of Global Terrain using Spheroidal Height-Augmented Quadtrees 

    Wartell, Zachary; Ribarsky, William; Hodges, Larry (Springer and The Eurographics Association, 1999)

  • Geodesic Flow on Polyhedral Surfaces 

    Polthier, Konrad; Schmies, Markus (Springer and The Eurographics Association, 1999)
    On a curved surface the front of a point wave evolves in concentric circles which start to overlap and branch after a certain time. This evolution is described by the geodesic flow and helps us to understand the geometry ...
