A Viewer-dependent Tensor Field Visualization Using Multiresolution and Particle Tracing

  title={A Viewer-dependent Tensor Field Visualization Using Multiresolution and Particle Tracing},
  author={Jos{\'e} Luiz Ribeiro de Souza Filho and Marcelo Caniato Renhe and Marcelo Bernardes Vieira and Gildo de Almeida Leonel},
This paper presents an adaptive method for visualization of tensor fields using multiresolution and viewer position and orientation. A particle tracing method is used in order to explore the benefits of motion to the human perceptual system. The particles are inserted and advected through the field based on a priority list which ranks tensors according to anisotropy measures and viewer parameters. Tensor fields representing colinear and coplanar structures are suitable for multiresolution…
