报告题目:Visualizing Network Graphs in an Immersive Virtual Environment

时间地点:3月7日15:00,计算机楼938会议室

主讲:张康教授 Department of Computer Science, The University of Texas at Dallas, USA

ABSTRACT:

Network graph visualization faces the challenges of visual clutters and occlusions due to edge crossings and node-edge overlaps. Approaches for efficient and effective exploration of network graphs are urgently needed. This talk will present an interactive visualization approach for intuitive exploration of network graphs inside a spherical virtual reality environment. To reduce visual clutter and reveal network patterns, we also propose a parameterized 5-step 3D edge bundling algorithm and a set of techniques to avoid collision of graph edges with the viewpoint. Our spherical interaction and 3D edge bundling approach have been implemented in an Oculus Rift VR system. We demonstrate the usefulness of our approach with two case studies on real-world data and usability experiments. Other research projects, including tree visualization and generative art, will also be briefly introduced.
