Visualizing Time-Varying Volume Data
March/April 2003 (vol. 5 no. 2)
pp. 34-42
Kwan-Liu Ma, University of California, Davis

Interactive visualization aids to our ability to understand the vast amount of data from large-scale simulations of complex, transient phenomena. This article reviews the most effective strategies developed so far for enabling interactive visualization of volume data from time-varying simulations with a focus on the encoding, feature extraction, and rendering issues. We also identify and discuss emerging trends in time-varying data visualization research and their potential impacts on scientific research community.

Index Terms:
encoding, feature extraction and tracking, graphics hardware interactive visualization, parallel processing, scientific visualization time-varying data, volume rendering, high-dimensional data
