Studies have shown that observers’ judgments of surface orientation and curvature are affected by the presence of surface texture pattern. However, the question of designing a texture pattern that does not hide the surface information nor conveys a misrepresentation of the surface remains unsolved. The answer to this question has important potential impact across a wide range of visualization applications. Molecular modeling and radiation therapy are among the many fields that are in need of… CONTINUE READING
