Complex Logarithmic Views for Small Details in Large Contexts

  title={Complex Logarithmic Views for Small Details in Large Contexts},
  author={Joachim B{\"o}ttger and Michael Balzer and Oliver Deussen},
  journal={IEEE Transactions on Visualization and Computer Graphics},
Commonly known detail in context techniques for the two-dimensional Euclidean space enlarge details and shrink their context using mapping functions that introduce geometrical compression. This makes it difficult or even impossible to recognize shapes for large differences in magnification factors. In this paper we propose to use the complex logarithm and the complex root functions to show very small details even in very large contexts. These mappings are conformal, which means they only… CONTINUE READING
