Display and perception of 3-D space-filling data. Academic Article uri icon


  • We discuss the fundamental challenges associated with visual interpretation of space-filling data and describe a display method which has proved to be very useful and flexible for this task. This display method, which is based on computational corollaries to physical optics and the dynamic use of conventional CRT displays, results in excellent 3-D perception. The discussion outlines the algorithm used for implementation on a PC/AT and its extension to achieve a real-time interactive display environment.
