The State-of-the-Art of Set Visualization

Sets comprise a generic data model that has been used in a variety of data analysis problems. Such problems involve analysing and visualizing set relations between multiple sets defined over the same... Read more »

Visualizing Waypoints-Constrained Origin-Destination Patterns for Massive Transportation Data

Origin-destination (OD) pattern is a highly useful means for transportation research since it summarizes urban dynamics and human mobility. However, existing visual analytics are insufficient for certain OD analytical tasks needed in... Read more »

Recognition-Difficulty-Aware Hidden Images Based on Clue-Map

Hidden images contain one or several concealed foregrounds which can be recognized with the assistance of clues preserved by artists. Experienced artists are trained for years to be skilled enough to find... Read more »

Recent Trends, Applications, and Perspectives in 3D Shape Similarity Assessment

The recent introduction of 3D shape analysis frameworks able to quantify the deformation of a shape into another in terms of the variation of real functions yields a new interpretation of the... Read more »

Environmental Objects for Authoring Procedural Scenes

We propose a novel approach for authoring large scenes with automatic enhancement of objects to create geometric decoration details such as snow cover, icicles, fallen leaves, grass tufts or even trash. We... Read more »

Coordinated Crowd Simulation With Topological Scene Analysis

This paper proposes a new algorithm to produce globally coordinated crowds in an environment with multiple paths and obstacles. Simple greedy crowd control methods easily lead to congestion at bottlenecks within scenes,... Read more »

A Procedural Approach to Modelling Virtual Climbing Plants With Tendrils

Climbing plants with tendrils show search and coiling behaviour. A tendril searches for a host object and then twines around it. Subsequently, the tendril coils to pull the main stem of the... Read more »

Reducing Lateral Visual Biases in Displays

The human visual system is composed of multiple physiological components that apply multiple mechanisms in order to cope with the rich visual content it encounters. The complexity of this system leads to... Read more »

SAR: Stroke Authorship Recognition

Are simple strokes unique to the artist or designer who renders them? If so, can this idea be used to identify authorship or to classify artistic drawings? Also, could training methods be... Read more »

A Survey of Real-Time Crowd Rendering

In this survey we review, classify and compare existing approaches for real-time crowd rendering. We first overview character animation techniques, as they are highly tied to crowd rendering performance, and then we... Read more »
