GlyphSea: Visualizing Vector Data
[ Click above image for streaming video via SciVee]
This video explains a novel method, to encode vector data visually, and demonstrates examples in an interactive application named GlyphSea. This new method employs the addition of polar dots on any glyph shape to indicate the orientation of vector in an unambiguous and view-independent fashion. This new visualization technique may help seismologists to accurately analyze ground movements for an earthquake, measure magnetic turbulence in deep space, or allow medical researchers to study areas such as blood flow and nutrient absorption.
