    Shadow puppet plays, a traditional Malaysian theater art, is slowly losing its appeal to adolescents, who prefer computer games. To help reverse this decline, the authors incorporated the traditional Seri Rama character into the Street Fighter video game. Using modeling, texturing, and animation, they developed a 3D Seri Rama prototype. Users can control Seri Rama with a PlayStation game controlle... View full abstract»

    Scientists frequently tell stories using visualizations of scientific data, in the process of disseminating findings to peers and the general public. However, techniques and methods for effective scientific storytelling have received little attention so far. This article explores how literary and theatrical narrative conventions can inform the design and presentation of visualizations, and discuss... View full abstract»

    Simulations of turbulent flames have used particles to capture the dynamic behavior of combustion in next-generation engines. Each particle includes a history of its movement positions and changing thermochemical states. Analyzing such a set of many millions of particles helps scientists understand turbulence. A dual-space method enables effective visual analysis of both the spatial movement and a... View full abstract»

    Streamit lets users explore visualizations of text streams without prior knowledge of the data. It incorporates incoming documents from a continuous source into an existing visualization context with automatic grouping and separation based on document similarities. A powerful user interface allows in-depth data analysis. View full abstract»

    ImageHive communicates information about an image collection by generating a summary image that preserves the relationships between images and avoids occluding their salient parts. It uses a constrained graph-layout algorithm first, to preserve image similarities and keep important parts visible, and then a constrained Voronoi tessellation algorithm to locally refine the layout and tile the image ...

    Trajectories capture the movements of objects with multiple attributes. A visualization method called density maps shows trends in these trajectories. Density map creation involves aggregating smoothed trajectories in a density field and then visualizing the field. Users can explore attributes along trajectories by calculating a density field for multiple data subsets. The method then either combi... View full abstract»

  • Two Visualization Tools for Analyzing Agent-Based Simulations in Political Science

    Agent-based modeling has become a key technique for modeling and simulating dynamic, complicated behaviors in the social and political sciences. Although many robust toolkits for developing and running these simulations exist, systems that support analysis of their results are few and tend to be overly general. So, social scientists have had difficulty interpreting the results of their increasingl... View full abstract»

  • Using Time-Varying Texels to Simulate Withering Grassland

    Cited by:  Papers (1)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (15732 KB) | HTML iconHTML Multimedia Media

    Time-varying texels (TVTs) simulate the withering dynamics of grassland. TVTs employ a hybrid texel-and-points scheme, allowing the volume models to handle time-varying simulations. The modeling of grass carries out physically based calculations on the point-based structure. These calculations express the geometric deformation of each grass blade while providing a basis for further transformation ... View full abstract»

    Visual analytics (VA)-the fusion of analytical reasoning and computational data analysis with rich, interactive visual representations-promises to provide many relevant techniques for business-ecosystem-intelligence systems. However, the effectiveness of such systems requires the careful curation of complex, heterogeneous, and distributed data; an in-depth understanding of the business ecosystem c... View full abstract»

    There's not enough time in a computer science curriculum to teach soft skills, such as interdisciplinary collaboration or self-motivated learning, although employers demand these skills in the workplace. The author discusses a master's-level course in Data and Information Visualization, in which she adopted three structures-transdisciplinary collaboration, breadth-first teaching, and long-tail edu...
