Elmar Eisemann’s inauguration speech: today at 15:00 in the TU Delft Aula!

Today, Elmar Eisemann, the head of our Computer Graphics and Visualization group, will be delivering his inauguration speech at 3 pm in the TU Delft Aula. Don’t miss this once in a lifetime opportunity to hear about, and see, the many exciting possibilities and application areas of computer graphics. Find out in what directions our group will develop in and join us this afternoon at the aula auditorium. Check out the full invitation here!

MSc thesis successfully defended

On the 10th of October, Lennaert van den Brink successfully defended his thesis “HiveArcs – visualizing genome co-expression data“. In his work, he introduced HiveArcs, an interactive online visual analysis for genome co-expression data. HiveArcs visualizes modules using arc diagrams on radially placed axes. Using this lay-out accommodates display of per-gene tracks of additional information as well as relationships between modules. This allows for quick and intuitive comparison between modules as well as in depth analysis of a single module.

We would like to congratulate Lennaert with his work and defense and wish him all the best for the future!

Two MSc theses successfully defended

Korijn van Golen and Matthijs Neven successfully defended their theses in our group recently.

Landmark Influence VisualizationLandmark Influence Visualization
Landmark Influence Visualization

On Tuesday, the 8th of July, Korijn defended his thesis “Landmark Influence Visualization in Active Shape Models”. In his work he introduced a novel landmark influence visualization that improves the usability of Active Shape Models. Landmark influence is defined as the change the model fit will undergo if a landmark is removed. The landmark influence is visualized using disk glyphs around landmarks. A region-of-interest filter can be used to inspect influence on local regions. Distance maps and animations visualize how the shape will change.

Remote Rendering interface

On Friday, the 22nd of August, Matthijs defended his thesis “Interactive Remote Rendering”. In his work, he present an interactive remote volume-rendering system that tries to bridge the gap between complex medical volume data and the patient. The user can easily upload their own data, which they receive from the clinician after a scan, which they can then visualize. The application does not require any medical or volume visualization background, and can run from any device with a working internet connection and an internet browser.

We’d like to congratulate Korijn and Matthijs with their Master of Science titles!

MSc thesis successfully defended last week

Casper van Leeuwen successfully defended his thesis ‘Spatial-temporal pathline clustering based on FTLE fields‘ in our group on the 14th of May.

In his work, Casper worked with cardiac flow acquisition data consisting of 3D blood flow of the heart featuring 4D vector fields. These 4D vector fields of the heart are used in clinical research to gain insight in the flow patterns within the heart which in turn can be used to gain a better understanding of the pathogenesis of cardiovascular diseases. He implemented a visualization technique called Spatial-temporal Clustering based on Finite Time Lyapunov Exponents, that aims to circumvent the challenges posed by the structural complexity of the flow and give a concise and insightful representation of the blood flow patterns within the heart. Aside from the main visualization technique this works also introduces a novel probing technique that highlights the base principles of the FTLE fields to provide the user with a better understanding of how a FTLE field works.
