    In computer science, an ontology is essentially a graph-based knowledge representation in which each node corresponds to a concept and each edge specifies a relation between two concepts. Ontological development in biology can serve as a focus to discuss the challenges and possible research directions for ontologies in visualization. The principle challenges are the dynamic and evolving nature of ... View full abstract»

    Researchers employed digital manikins to determine the space necessary in an emergency-medical-service helicopter to effectively and efficiently conduct life-saving medical procedures. To simulate resuscitation with appropriate digital human models, they used Anthropos ErgoMAX modeling software in the 3D Studio Max environment. View full abstract»

    The need for data-centric scientific tools is growing; domains such as biology, chemistry, and physics are increasingly adopting computational approaches. So, scientists must deal with the challenges of big data. To address these challenges, researchers built a visual-analytics platform named DIVE (Data Intensive Visualization Engine). DIVE is a data-agnostic, ontologically expressive software fra... View full abstract»

  • Characterizing Cancer Subtypes Using Dual Analysis in Caleydo StratomeX

    Dual analysis uses statistics to describe both the dimensions and rows of a high-dimensional dataset. Researchers have integrated it into StratomeX, a Caleydo view for cancer subtype analysis. In addition, significant-difference plots show the elements of a candidate subtype that differ significantly from other subtypes, thus letting analysts characterize subtypes. Analysts can also investigate ho... View full abstract»

  • Visual Exploration of Parameter Influence on Phylogenetic Trees

    Evolutionary relationships between organisms are frequently derived as phylogenetic trees inferred from multiple sequence alignments (MSAs). The MSA parameter space is exponentially large, so tens of thousands of potential trees can emerge for each dataset. A proposed visual-analytics approach can reveal the parameters' impact on the trees. Given input trees created with different parameter settin... View full abstract»

    Although interactive computer-generated ocean scenes based on real wave spectra are impressively realistic, they usually don't exhibit the original sea state's statistical properties. This might be unacceptable for applications in which the sea surface height field's correctness is important, such as 3D ship simulators for training professionals. Researchers have developed a discretization of the ... View full abstract»

    This third installment of the Beautiful Math articles considers the visualization of aesthetic patterns with hyperbolic-triangle-group symmetries. A flexible form of invariant mappings contributes to a simple, efficient way to generate hyperbolic patterns. Combined with conformal mappings, this method can yield an abundance of exotic patterns.

    DETI-Interact is an interactive system that offers information relevant to students in the lobby of the University of Aveiro's Department of Electronics, Telecommunications and Informatics (DETI). The project started in 2009 with a master's thesis addressing interaction with public displays through Android smartphones. Since then, it has evolved considerably; it currently allows gesture interactio... View full abstract»
