Visual Search in Time-Oriented Research Data for Digital Libraries

May 7th, 2010 | By | Category: Featured Articles, News

Today’s digital libraries and data centers store huge amounts of data, collected, for example, by scientific experimentation, earth observation, or simulation. The common approach to support user navigation and retrieval in these libraries operates on meta-information that is manually appended to the datasets.

Especially for large datasets, this approach quickly reaches its limits due to scalability with respect to manual annotation.

Video Visual Analytics of Tracked Moving Objects

Apr 23rd, 2010 | By | Category: Featured Articles, News

Exploring video data by simply watching does not scale for large databases.This problem arises in a wide variety of domains, such as scientificvideo analysis, digital life streams, and video surveillance.

Motivated by a mini challenge of the contest of the IEEE Symposium on Visual Analytics Science and Technology 2009 (Detecting the encounter of persons in a provided video stream utilizing the techniques of visual analytics), we propose an approach for fast identification of relevant objects based on the properties of their trajectories.

Improving the Usage of Large Display Environments

Apr 14th, 2010 | By | Category: Featured Articles, News

Of the machine components that are part of visual analytics, human-computer interaction, and visualization, the display has one of the largest effects.

The display determines the physical size of the viewport, the range of effective field-of-view and resolution that is possible, and the types of feasible interaction modalities. All other interactions must be placed in the context of the display. If you have ever seen a movie on a large screen TV, then you have been surely impressed with the captivating display that makes the viewing innately attractive.

Call for Papers IEEE/EG International Symposium on Volume Graphics

Jan 15th, 2010 | By | Category: Conferences, News

Volume graphics deals with the analysis, synthesis and presentation of volumetric phenomena, both static and time-varying. Specifically, it includes topics, both volumetric and point-based, related to the acquisition, reconstruction and transformation of volume data as well as feature analysis, information extraction and rendering. Research papers are solicited that present original, unpublished results concerning all aspects of volume graphics and point-based graphics. We especially invite research contributions that report computational techniques.
