The authors describe a data exploration system that visualizes time-varying, multivariate, point-based data from gyrokinetic particle simulations. By using two interaction modes, their system lets researchers explore collections of densely packed particles and discover interesting aspects, such as the location and motion of particles trapped in turbulent plasma flow.
