This morning between 10:00 and 12:00, Bastijn Vissers presented and then defended his M.Sc. thesis on the Direct Visualization of Photographic Volumes. In this work, he investigated issues around applying direct volume rendering techniques to photographic volumes, for example cadaveric cryosections. He also developed a new technique for flexible and easy-to-use illustrative volume rendering appearance specification called EbAS, or Example-based Appearance Specification.
You can find more screenshots, youtube clips and his thesis on the project page. We are very proud that Bastijn will soon start working as a software developer at Philips Healthcare in Best.
