This book emerged from a DoE/NSF-sponsored workshop, held in Tahoe City, California, October 2000. About fifty invited participants presented state-of-the-art research on topics such as: - terrain modeling - multiresolution subdivision - wavelet-based scientific data compression - topology-based visualization - data structures, data organization and indexing schemes for scientific data visualization. All invited papers were carefully refereed, resulting in this collection. The book will be of great interest to researchers, graduate students and professionals dealing with scientific visualization and its applications.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

From the reviews:

"This work … introduce the first end-to-end multiresolution dataflow strategy that can effectively combine the top performing subdivision-surface wavelet compression and view-dependent optimization methods, thus increasing efficiency by several orders of magnitude over conventional processing pipelines. … Overall, this is the first effort to exploit semi-structured surface representations for a complete large-data visualization pipeline." (Wordtrade, July, 2008)
