    Researchers have made significant progress in disciplines such as scientific and information visualization, statistically based exploratory and confirmatory analysis, data and knowledge representations, and perceptual and cognitive sciences. Although some research is being done in this area, the pace at which new technologies and technical talents are becoming available is far too slow to meet the... View full abstract»

    At the Wearable Computer Lab at the University of South Australia, we have been performing research into outdoor augmented reality (AR) systems for the last seven years. During this time the technology has vastly improved, resulting in more accurate systems that have better quality output. While tracking and registration are important issues in the area of AR, it's also important that we have suit... View full abstract»

    Three-dimensional computer visualization and animation can provide a substitute for coastal residents', lack of personal experience with hurricane-surge flooding. Tremendous progress has been made in 3D animation in the last decade, which movies such as Perfect Storm and The Day After Tomorrow have demonstrated. However, the 3D visualization and animation system for storm-surge flooding differs fr... View full abstract»

    A majority of the artists in the graphics community use one of the mainstream packages for modeling and designing a scene for 3D rendering. These packages - such as Alias' Maya, Discreet's 3ds Max, or Newtek's Lightwave -provide slider bars and numerical inputs that let the artist design the material's attributes, such as smoothness and metallic qualities. While advanced users develop a mental map... View full abstract»

  • Secrets to success and fatal flaws: the design of large-display groupware

    Research in the field of large-display groupware applications has yet to yield a killer app, a common look and feel for applications, or a set of broadly applicable design principles. It's therefore difficult to understand what constitutes a successful large-display groupware application and what affects their adoption. Although large-display groupware faces many of the same adoption and use chall... View full abstract»

    Operational forecasters and weather researchers need accurate visualization of atmospheric data from both computational models and observed data. Although these two applications share some requirements, they have different needs and goals. We've developed a visualization tool for atmospheric science researchers and research weather forecasters that allows the 3D visualization of measured radar dat... View full abstract»

    It is possible to one day create non-multiplexed room-sized displays using, for example, e-ink to create wallpapers and floor tiling. The environment could thereby simultaneously display visual elements on all of its surfaces. Thoughtlessly used, however, such an environment could easily become confusing and annoying by visually polluting otherwise calm surroundings. To prevent this visual polluti... View full abstract»

    The problem of collision detection between objects is fundamental in many different communities including CAD, robotics, computer graphics, and computational geometry. This article presents a fast collision detection technique for all types of rigid bodies, demonstrated using polygon soups. We present two algorithms for computing a discrete spherical distance field of models. For compactly storing... View full abstract»

    Given the depth and breadth of the field of interactive rendering, an article summarizing all the significant algorithms and hardware developments in the past few years would become a long yet shallow litany of taxonomies and terms. Instead, the author uses a selection of topics from various areas to illustrate this central theme: the influence of 3D graphics hardware on algorithm design. This art... View full abstract»

    A major challenge to making creative leaps in media innovations is demonstrating the magnitude of human impact that each new media technology will bring. The emerging media of mixed reality - the blending of real and synthetic environments and objects - has melted the boundaries between physical and virtual realities, letting us interweave simulated characters and scenes into real-world experience...
