VMML: New SNF project granted


The Swiss National Science Foundation granted VMML director Renato Pajarola a three-year project, together with Arzu Coltekin, Sara Fabrikant, and Röbi Weibel.


Perceptual and Foveated Adaptive Level-of-Detail in Interactive Geographic Feature Visualization

The analysis of geo-spatial data is helped by interactive visualization. However, there are usually massive amounts of data that need to be processed and managed effectively. In this SNF project, we bring together two areas of expertise – concepts from geometric simplification and from cartographic generalization – to come up with efficient ways to interactively visualize large data sets, and we explore a novel gaze-contingent design framework to manage the level-of-detail with both computational and human factors in mind.
