"The Use of Volume Scene Graphs in Very Large Dataset Visualization"

Professor Min Chen & Dr David Chisnall, Computer Science, University of
Wales, Swansea.

Friday, 23rd June 2006, 1400 to 1500 pm British Summer Time

ESNW Access Grid, Room 1.10, Kilburn Building

The concept of volume scene graphs provides an elegant means for combining
multiple datasets into a visualization in a constructive manner. In this
talk, the speakers will present the algebraic framework of volume scene
graphs, describe how different types of datasets (e.g., volume, point
clouds) are combined into a volume scene graph, and discuss the relative
merits of discrete ray tracing in rendering volume scene graphs. They will
consider the challenges in modelling and rendering very large datasets in
a complex volume scene graph, and examine several methods for out-of-core
data management. In particular, they will highlight the use of the
knowledge-based approach, which minimises the needs for hard-coding
application-specific logic into a visualization system.
