2017-2020 Swiss National Science Foundation Grant



Our project on "Perceptual and Foveated Adaptive Level-of-Detail in Interactive Geographic Feature Visualization" has been awarded a 3-year Swiss National Science Foundation (SNF) research grant. In this 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 and analyze large geo-spatial 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. Dr. Arzu Çöltekin, Prof. Sara I. Fabrikant and Prof. Robert Weibel will support this project in the areas of geo-visualization and perception.
