Vector fields produced by experiments or simulations are usually extremely dense, which makes their manipulation and visualization cumbersome. Often, such fields can be simplified without much loss of information. A simplification method for 3D vector fields defined over tetrahedral meshes is presented. The underlying tetrahedral mesh is progressively simplified by successive half-edge collapses. The order of collapses is determined by a compound metric which takes into account the field and… CONTINUE READING
