  • 3D Shape Matching based on Geodesic Distance Distributions 

    Martinek, Michael; Ferstl, Matthias; Grosso, Roberto (The Eurographics Association, 2012)
    In this work, we present a signature for 3D shapes which is based on the distribution of geodesic distances. Our shape descriptor is invariant with respect to rotation and scaling as well as articulations of the object. ...

  • Visualizing Dynamic Call Graphs 

    Burch, Michael; Müller, Christoph; Reina, Guido; Schmauder, Hansjoerg; Greis, Miriam; Weiskopf, Daniel (The Eurographics Association, 2012)
    Visualizing time-varying call graphs is challenging due to vast amounts of data at many dimensions to be displayed: Hierarchically organized vertices with attributes, directed or undirected edges with weights, and time. ...
  • The Great Wall of Space-Time 

    Tominski, Christian; Schulz, Hans-Joerg (The Eurographics Association, 2012)
    Understanding how data evolves in space and time is an essential task in many application domains. Despite the numerous visual methods that have been proposed to facilitate this task (e.g., showing the data on a map or ...
  • Markov Chain Driven Multi-Dimensional Visual Pattern Analysis with Parallel Coordinates 

    Geng, Zhao; Walker, James; Laramee, Robert S. (The Eurographics Association, 2012)
    Parallel coordinates is a widely used visualization technique for presenting, analyzing and exploring multidimensional data. However, like many other visualizations, it can suffer from an overplotting problem when rendering ...
  • Visualization of Scene Structure Uncertainty in a Multi-View Reconstruction Pipeline 

    Recker, Shawn; Hess-Flores, Mauricio; Duchaineau, Mark A.; Joy, Kenneth I. (The Eurographics Association, 2012)
    This paper presents a novel, interactive visualization tool that allows for the analysis of scene structure uncer- tainty and its sensitivity to parameters in different multi-view scene reconstruction stages. Given a set ...
  • Optimized Canonical Coordinate Frames for 3D Object Normalization 

    Martinek, Michael; Grosso, Roberto; Greiner, Günther (The Eurographics Association, 2012)
    In this paper, we describe a method to optimize an orthogonal system of axes for 3D objects in order to perform normalization with respect to orientation and scale. An energy function evaluates the quality of a system by ...
  • Resolving Twisted Surfaces within an Iterative Refinement Surface Reconstruction Approach 

    Annuth, Hendrik; Bohn, Christian-A. (The Eurographics Association, 2012)
    We present a method which resolves twisted surface regions within a surface reconstruction approach that uses local refinement operations to iteratively fit a surface into an unorganized point cloud. We show that this local ...
  • A Mixed Shape Space for Fast Interpolation of Articulated Shapes 

    Marras, Stefano; Cashman, Thomas J.; Hormann, Kai (The Eurographics Association, 2012)
    Interpolation between compatible triangle meshes that represent different poses of some object is a fundamental operation in geometry processing. A common approach is to consider the static input shapes as points in a ...
  • Registration of Temporal Ultrasonic Image Sequences Using Markov Random Fields 

    Schäfer, Sebastian; Toennies, Klaus (The Eurographics Association, 2012)
    Ultrasound perfusion imaging is a rapid and inexpensive technique which enables observation of a dynamic process with high temporal resolution. The image acquisition is disturbed by various motion influences due to the ...
  • Cyclic Numerical Time Integration in Variational Non-Rigid Image Registration based on Quadratic Regularisation 

    Mang, Andreas; Schuetz, Tina Anne; Becker, Stefan; Toma, Alina; Buzug, Thorsten M. (The Eurographics Association, 2012)
    In the present work, a novel computational framework for variational non-rigid image registration is discussed. The fundamental aim is to provide an alternative to approximate approaches based on successive convolution, ...
  • Implicit Integral Surfaces 

    Stöter, Torsten; Weinkauf, Tino; Seidel, Hans-Peter; Theisel, Holger (The Eurographics Association, 2012)
    We present an implicit method for globally computing all four classic types of integral surfaces - stream, path, streak, and time surfaces - in 3D time-dependent vector fields. Our novel formulation is based on the ...
  • Segmentation of Vertebral Bodies in MR Images 

    Zukic, Dzenan; Vlasák, Ales; Dukatz, Thomas; Egger, Jan; Horínek, Daniel; Nimsky, Christopher; Kolb, Andreas (The Eurographics Association, 2012)
    Segmentation of vertebral bodies is useful for diagnosis of certain spine pathologies, such as scoliosis, spondylolisthesis and vertebral fractures. In this paper, we present a fast and semi-automatic approach for spine ...
  • Adaptive Treelet Meshes for Efficient Streak-Surface Visualization on the GPU 

    Fuchs, Raphael; Schindler, Benjamin; Carnecky, Robert; Waser, Jürgen; Yang, Yun; Peikert, Ronny (The Eurographics Association, 2012)
    We describe a novel adaptive mesh representation for streak-surfaces. The surface is represented as a mesh of small trees of initial depth zero (treelets). This mesh representation allows for efficient integration, refinement, ...

    Csébfalvi, Balázs; Tóth, Balázs; Bruckner, Stefan; Gröller, Eduard (The Eurographics Association, 2012)
