The IEEE Visualization Design Contests aim to foster the development of new visualization tools, techniques and solutions to existing real-world problems. This article describes the scientific questions posed for the contest for a turbulence data set, contest evaluation procedure, and the 2008 contest results. The winning entry presents a system for linking multi-dimensional feature-space cluster visualization to surface extraction from multi-field volume data designed to answer the contest questions. This article also includes a sidebar by Amit Chourasia and Russell M. Taylor II.
