    Alex Endert's dissertation "Semantic Interaction for Visual Analytics: Inferring Analytical Reasoning for Model Steering" described semantic interaction, a user interaction methodology for visual analytics (VA). It showed that user interaction embodies users' analytic process and can thus be mapped to model-steering functionality for "human-in-the-loop" system design. The dissertation contributed ...

    Card weaving is a simple, easy weaving method, but designing patterns is typically laborious and requires knowledge, experience, and skill. The Weavy system helps users design and weave original patterns with or without repeating elements. In the latter case, the system automatically considers constraints such as the number of yarn colors and the cards' rotation direction. Following Weavy's constr... View full abstract»

    The flexible pinhole camera (FPC) allows flexible modulation of the sampling rate over the field of view. The FPC is defined by a viewpoint and a map specifying the sampling locations on the image plane. The map is constructed from known regions of interest with interactive and automatic approaches. The FPC provides inexpensive 3D projection that allows rendering complex datasets quickly, in feed-... View full abstract»

    Specular reflection plays an important role in an image's appearance. However, LCDs don't have sufficient contrast to express specular reflection, and ordinary projector screens only have diffuse-reflection surfaces. A new display system projects ultrasound waves to dynamically change the reflection state of a screen made of a colloidal substance--soap film. The system uses time division multiplex...

    Spacecraft exploration of asteroids presents autonomous-navigation challenges that can be aided by virtual models to test and develop guidance and hazard-avoidance systems. Researchers have extended and applied graphics techniques to create high-resolution asteroid models to simulate cameras and other spacecraft sensors approaching and descending toward asteroids. A scalable model structure with e... View full abstract»

    How do we tell whether a proposed visualization is a valid pictorial representation of the truth or just an accidental but appealing image? Art and science can work brilliantly together in visualization science, but we must know when, and how, to distinguish them. View full abstract»

    This article examine the new types of analysis and new applications that the availability of large quantities of cultural-heritage data could enable. Currently, most of these applications are experimental. We can expect them to take many years of research before they mature and provide cultural-heritage professionals with novel research methods.
