We present ScaleTrotter, a conceptual framework for an interactive, multi-scale visualization of biological mesoscale data and, specifically, genome data. [...] Key Method We use a scale-dependent camera model that controls the visual embedding of the scales into their respective parents, the rendering of a subset of the scale hierarchy, and the location, size, and scope of the view.Expand
Multiscale Unfolding: Illustratively Visualizing the Whole Genome at a Glance.
Multiscale Unfolding allows viewers to grasp the DNA's structural composition from chromosomes to the atoms, with increasing levels of "unfoldedness," and can be applied in data-driven illustration and communication.
HyperLabels: Browsing of Dense and Hierarchical Molecular 3D Models
A method for the browsing of hierarchical 3D models in which the typical navigation of hierarchical structures in a 2D environment is combined with a 3D spatial data visualization, using HyperLabels: active labels that—in addition to their annotational role—also support user interaction.
