THEORETICAL FOUNDATIONS OF 3D SCALAR FIELD VISUALIZATION

Mohammed Mostefa Mesmoudi, Leila De Floriani, Paolo Rosso

Abstract

In this paper we introduce two novel technics that allow for a three dimensional scalar field to be visualized in the three dimensional space R3. Many applications are possible especially in medicine imagery. New multiresolution models can be build based our techniques. Moreover, we show that these two visualization techniques allow the extraction of morphological features of the space and that may not be captured by classical methods.
