CGV Colloquium – Thursday April 9th

You are cordially invited to attend our next Computer Graphics and Visualization (CGV) Colloquium, which will be held on Thursday April 9, 2015, 15.45-17.20, in the Dijkstraroom (HB09.150). The program this month features the following speakers:

  • Mattijs van Driel:
    • Title – Real time intersections on  Space Scale Cube data
    • Abstract – The space scale cube (SSC) model offers a new way of encoding 2D geographic data with continuous level of abstraction on the Z axis. It lacks a flexible way of visualizing intersections, which is what this work offers at its core. A SSC based dataset is preprocessed into a simple octree structure, which is then used as input for an interactive rendering system that provides a user controllable intersection surface. The system uses the octree structure to cull unnecessary chunks, and OpenGL to render the intersections themselves. In addition to rendering intersections, the approach allows for a number of enhancements on the final image, such as antialiasing and transition colorization.
  • Rob Coorens:
    • Title – Quantification of deformation and sliding of orbital fat during rotation of the eye Short
    • Abstract – When the eye rotates, the muscles contract and move through the orbital fat. This movement is a combination of sliding through the fat and deformation of the fat. The goal of the project is to quantify both types of movement from MRI data of the orbit using registration and segmentation techniques.

As a reminder, all CGV MSc students (both seminar and thesis project) are expected to attend our monthly colloquium series. All other interested colleagues are more than welcome, so feel free to disseminate this announcement. Looking forward to see you all at the colloquium!

Memorial of the 1953 North Sea Flood

A discussion round on Wednesday 30th February was held in the TU Delft Science Center regarding the memorial of the North Sea Flood in 1953. 60 years ago, in the night of 31st January to the 1st February, a large flood hit the southern provinces of the Netherlands (Zeeland, South Holland and parts of Brabant). The flood took the inhabitants by in mid of the night by suprise, causing a death toll of several hundred people.

The discussion round, aiming the memorial of flood as well as future protection against such events, was supported by our 3Di Visualization system. Further information on the memorial is available as an interview of Olivier Hoes, associate professor at the TU Delft and lead scientist- and organisor of the event, an interview by TV West Nieuws of Olivier Hoes, an article in TU Delta on the visualization system and an article the TU newspage with some conclusions on the discussion.

3Di is a research programme in which the TU works together with Deltares and Nelen& Schuurmans on the development of a new generation flood simulation models.

Computer Graphics and Visualization (CGV) Colloquium

You are cordially invited to attend our first Computer Graphics and Visualization (CGV) Colloquium of 2013, which will be held on Thursday, January 17 at 15:45 in the Shannon Room, on the 10th floor of the EEMCS building.

The programme is as follows:

  •  Hugo Meijer: Preprocessing large point-cloud data in the cloud
  • Chris van Egmond: Visualizing multiple two-dimensional data fields simultaneously in a single image

Because this is slightly shorter than usually, you are encouraged to make good use of that extra time, e.g. at the (by now traditional) socializing event following our colloquiums.
