    Annotating photographs is such a time-consuming, tedious and error-prone data entry task that it discourages most owners of personal photo libraries. By allowing the user to drag labels, such as personal names, from a scrolling list and drop them onto a photo, we believe we can make the task faster, easier and more appealing. Since the names are entered in a database, searching for all photos of a... View full abstract»

  • Towards a 3D visualisation framework for construction planning with Procession

    Publication Year: 2000, Page(s):577 - 582
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (616 KB)

    The construction industry traditionally uses two dimensional visualisation techniques to analyse project progress. This usually takes the form of an `s-curve', so called because of the characteristic plot shape (anecdotally generated by resource application take-up in many projects). Analysing project progress in this manner provides a `single view' guide to data trends. The building blocks of pro... View full abstract»

    World Wide Web visualisation systems are widely used for browsing or viewing search engine results. In the case of a local Web search tool, however, the browsing paradigm is combined with a searching paradigm, thus requiring dynamic visualisation methods. We describe an example of a visualisation system that is an extension of a common JavaScript script that is used as a Web site map. It is interf... View full abstract»

  • Automatic generation of hair texture with line integral convolution

    Publication Year: 2000, Page(s):303 - 308
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (636 KB)

    Synthesis of hair images is one of the most important and challenging computer graphics problems. We propose a new technique for automatically generating realistic human hair texture on 3D models of human characters. The idea is inspired by the similarity between the texture of human hair and the texture generated by the LIC algorithm. The proposed technique generates the texture of human hair usi...

    We present a simple and intuitive rendering technique to create abstract paintings. This technique allows the users to render a given animated scene with multiple cameras, using a method inspired by concepts used by cubist and futurist abstract painters. In our method, the number of cameras is unlimited and the camera parameters are continuous functions. We define the camera parameters as parametr... View full abstract»

    Multi-user VR systems are mostly aimed at social interaction, whereas exploitation of shared virtual environments for educational purposes has been largely ignored. We introduce the notion of tutor-based systems and consider the main differences between a tutor-based multi-user system and a social interaction system. In the proposed approach, one of the users is the tutor while the others represen... View full abstract»
