The Application of Data Cubes in Business Data Visualization
Found in: Computing in Science & Engineering
By Xusheng Wang,Beifang Yi
Issue Date:November 2012
pp. 44-50
Data cubes are used in online analytical processing (OLAP) systems to support decision making. Constructed from base business data, this interactive visualization system introduces a conditional 1D cuboid hierarchical tree structure to represent data cubes...
The Analysis and Statistics of Line Distribution
Found in: IEEE Computer Graphics and Applications
By Jim Chen, Xusheng Wang, Jack Bresenham
Issue Date:November 2002
pp. 100-107
<p>The authors present the statistical distributions of line lengths and directions (slopes) in general graphics applications. They show practical facts of line characterization to guide graphics adapter hardware/software design decisions and provide...
Geographic Statistics Visualization: Web-Based Linked Micromap Plots

By Xusheng Wang, Jim X. Chen, Daniel B. Carr, B.Sue Bell, Linda Williams Pickle
Issue Date:May 2002
pp. 90-94
<p>Linked Micromap (LM) plots offer a new template for displaying spatially indexed statistical summaries. This template has four key features: it can <ul><li> Display at least three parallel sequences of panels (micromap, label, and stat...
Rendering Avatars in Virtual Reality: Integrating a 3D Model with 2D Images
Found in: Computing in Science and Engineering
By Yonggao Yang, Xusheng Wang, Jim X. Chen
Issue Date:January 2002
pp. 86-91
<p>Image-based rendering uses images or photographs to replace geometric models. This technique achieves shorter modeling time, faster rendering speed, and more realism. It also addresses different approaches for turning images into models and then i...
Physics-Based Modeling and Real-Time Simulation
Found in: Computing in Science and Engineering
By Jim X. Chen, Yonggao Yang, Xusheng Wang
Issue Date:May 2001
pp. 98-102
In graphics, modeling is a process of constructing a virtual 3D object (a computer model) from a real or an imaginary entity. A graphics model is a description of an object or entity in the computer. Modeling tools make creating and constructing complex 3D...
