• Movement Visualization

    Mapping and Visualization of Motion This research focuses on understanding how humans perceive movement visually. Movement is realized in both a three- (or four-) dimensional space (i.e. location and time) and a multidimensional attribute space (i.e. context variables). The syntheses of these two spaces need new effective tools for dynamic visualization of the traversal of a ...
