  • Sketch and Shade : An interactive assistant for sketching and shading 

    Parakkat, Amal Dev; Joshi, Sarang Anil; Pundarikaksha, Uday Bondi; Muthuganapathy, Ramanathan (Association for Computing Machinery, Inc (ACM), 2017)
    We present a drawing assistant for sketching and for assisting users in shading a hand drawn sketch. The augmented reality based system uses a sketch made by a professional and uses it to help inexperienced users to do ...
  • Characterizing User Behavior for Speech and Sketch-based Video Retrieval Interfaces 

    Altıok, Ozan Can; Sezgin, Tev k Metin (Association for Computing Machinery, Inc (ACM), 2017)
    From a user interaction perspective, speech and sketching make a good couple for describing motion. Speech allows easy speci cation of content, events and relationships, while sketching brings in spatial expressiveness. ...
  • Modeling Go: A mobile sketch-based modeling system for extracting objects 

    Lai, Chun-An; Chiang, Pei-Ying (Association for Computing Machinery, Inc (ACM), 2017)
    This article presents an easy to use mobile application which allows users to create 3D digital copies of their interested objects anywhere and anytime. An advanced 3-sweep modeling technique is developed to construct 3D ...
  • Shading with Painterly Filtered Layers: A Technique to Obtain Painterly Portrait Animations 

    Castaneda, Saif; Akleman, Ergun (Association for Computing Machinery, Inc (ACM), 2017)
    In this manuscript, we describe a process that can be used to create still and/or animated portrait paintings to be shown in Expressive Art Exhibit. Our process consists of two stages: (1) Creation of control textures for ...
  • A taxonomy of motion applications in data visualization 

    Arenas, Irene de la Torre -; Cruz, Pedro (Association for Computing Machinery, Inc (ACM), 2017)
    We propose a new taxonomy that explains the roles of motion in data visualization, focusing especially on their communicative aspects. Our taxonomy clarifies the main axis in how visualization designers can employ motion ...
  • Interactive swept surface modeling in virtual reality with motion-tracked controllers 

    McGraw, Tim; Garcia, Esteban; Sumner, Drew (Association for Computing Machinery, Inc (ACM), 2017)
    In this work we describe an interactive technique which enables gestural curve and surface design in an immersive virtual environment. We use a pair of motion tracked controllers to allow the user to intuitively control a ...
  • Flow2Code: From Hand-drawn Flowcharts to Code Execution 

    Herrera-Camara, Jorge-Ivan; Hammond, Tracy (Association for Computing Machinery, Inc (ACM), 2017)
    Flowcharts play an important role when learning to program by conveying algorithms graphically and making them easy to read and understand. Computer-based owchart design requires the user to learn the so ware rst, which ...
  • Conquering the Cube: Learning to Sketch Primitives in Perspective with an Intelligent Tutoring System 

    Keshavabhotla, Swarna; Williford, Blake; Kumar, Shalini; Hilton, Ethan; Taele, Paul; Li, Wayne; Linsey, Julie; Hammond, Tracy (Association for Computing Machinery, Inc (ACM), 2017)
    Design sketching is a powerful tool for expressing ideas from pen and paper e ectively and becoming a more well-rounded communicator. Sketching instructors conventionally employ pen and paper in their classrooms to convey ...
  • SmartSketcher: Sketch-based Image Retrieval with Dynamic Semantic Reranking 

    Portenier, Tiziano; Hu, Qiyang; Favaro, Paolo; Zwicker, Matthias (Association for Computing Machinery, Inc (ACM), 2017)
    We present a sketch-based image retrieval system, designed to answer arbitrary queries that may go beyond searching for predefined object or scene categories. While sketching is fast and intuitive to formulate visual ...
  • Front- and Backmatter: SBIM 2017 

    Holger Winnemoeller; Lyn Bartram (Association for Computing Machinery, Inc (ACM), 2017)
  • StandUp: Understanding Body-Part and Gestural Preferences for First-Person 3D Modeling 

    Dev, Kapil; Villar, Nicolas; Lau, Manfred (The Eurographics Association, 2016)
    There exists interfaces for 3D modeling that go beyond traditional keyboard and mouse input techniques. This paper takes a first-person paradigm of 3D modeling where a designer actively employs different body parts as part ...
  • EasySketch2: A Novel Sketch-based Interface for Improving Children's Fine Motor Skills and School Readiness 

    Kim, Honghoe; Taele, Paul; Seo, Jinsil; Liew, Jeffrey; Hammond, Tracy (The Eurographics Association, 2016)
    Children's fine motor skills are associated with enhanced drawing skills, as well as improved creativity, self-regulation skills, and school readiness. Assessing these skills enables parents and teachers to target areas ...
  • Sketch Based Skirt Image Retrieval 

    Kondo, Shin-ichiro; Toyoura, Masahiro; Mao, Xiaoyang (ACM, 2014)
    Although many online shops allow users to search for clothes by categories or keywords, it is usually impossible to specify the details of the design. This paper presents a new technology for retrieving skirt images based ...
  • 3D Geological Modeling using Sketches and Annotations from Geologic Maps 

    Amorim, Ronan; Brazil, Emilio Vital; Samavati, Faramarz; Sousa, Mario Costa (ACM, 2014)
    Constructing 3D geological models is a fundamental task in oil/gas exploration and production. A critical stage in the existing 3D geological modeling workflow is moving from a geological interpretation (usually 2D) to a ...
  • Mixed Heuristic Search for Sketch Prediction on Chemical Structure Drawing 

    Kang, Bo; Hu, Hao; LaViola, Joseph J. (ACM, 2014)
    Sketching is a natural way to input chemical structures that can be used to query information from a large chemical structure database. Based on a user's incomplete sketch of a chemical structure, sketch prediction becomes ...
  • Mosaic: Sketch-Based Interface for Creating Digital Decorative Mosaics 

    Abdrashitov, Rinat; Guy, Emilie; Yao, JiaXian; Singh, Karan (ACM, 2014)
    Mosaic is a sketch-based system that simplifies and automates the creation of digital decorative mosaics from scratch. The creation of each tile piece of unique shape, color and orientation, in a complex mosaic is a tedious ...
