    Visualization and team sports have an important and established relationship that is seldom understood. Team sports can be considered as complex activities containing a considerable number of abstract datasets and participant categories, such as athletes, coaches, referees and spectators. This paper proposes that the field of visualization has been applied within team sports in various ways to pro... View full abstract»

    The evaluation and comparison of 2D and 3D workspace environments is a hot topic. Much has been said concerning the promise of 3D workspaces but much less has been realised. Part of the problem appears to be the difficulty of developing 3D GUIs with high usabilities and effective navigation mechanisms. Many early environments simulated a 3D office but all suffered from a range of problems, from po... View full abstract»

    In tourism industry, reservation or booking through the Internet is now so common; it is becoming the practice among the big or small industry players. However, what is missing and lacking is the concept of virtual imaging that represent the ongoing transaction. For this paper, the focus is visualizing real time reservation for an island-based vacation area. Up to now, most of the information is c... View full abstract»

    The node-node overlaps, which occur in drawing of labeled graphs, and more importantly, in the dynamic drawing, have been a problem in graph visualization. Several approaches have recently been proposed to solve such a problem. These approaches, however, lack the scalabilities of dealing with large number of overlapping nodes. Providing a formal description of the problem, this paper presents a sc... View full abstract»

    This paper describes our efforts in creating the software in order to analyze the multi-sensor data for gas transmission pipeline inspection. The amount of data is usually considerable because the hardware system that consists of multiple heterogeneous sensors records multi-sensor values for long-distance inspection. It imposes a heavy burden on the operators who should sieve the huge and complex ... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (145 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    In this paper, a robust method is proposed for estimating skew angle of Persian document images. The proposed algorithm applies morphological closing on blotched image to obtain image with text line blocks. Later, the text line blocks are subjected to thinning to obtain the skeleton and convert the text into line like structures used to estimate the skew angle of document image. The results of the...

  • Debugging Trellis Decoding of Augmented RAC Array Codes Using a Visual Tool

    Publication Year: 2006, Page(s):71 - 75
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (189 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Two-dimensional (2D) row and column (RAC) codes are constructed from single parity check (SPC) component codes. Parity check positions of a RAC code can be augmented to improve code rate, resulting augmented RAC (ARAC) code. The augmentation process can be conducted on only row-parity check positions (ARAC-R), or on both row/column positions (ARAC-RC). A visual tool for debugging the process of Vi... View full abstract»

    Image compression has many applications. For example, it is an important step for distributed and network based pattern recognition. For real time object recognition or reconstruction, image compression can greatly reduce the image size, and hence increase the processing speed and enhance performance. Fractal image compression is a relatively recent image compression method. Its basic idea is to r... View full abstract»

    This paper presents a segmentation method that outlines fractured bones in an X-ray image of a patient's arm within casting materials, and displays the alignment between the fractured bones. This segmentation task is often difficult because the casting materials cause a low contrast and high noise ratio in the X-ray images. A geodesic active contour model with global constraints is applied to this... View full abstract»

    In this paper, we make the assumption that a shape modelling process can rely on the application of a set of morpho-semantic operators to initial shapes. In this paper, we refer to several researches which have attempted to identify such operators. We will attempt to validate this concept through the analysis of some ''innovative" buildings. Thus, in different projects of contemporary architects, ... View full abstract»
