Uncertainty-aware Prediction in Spatio-temporal Simulation Ensemble Visualizations

Marina Evers, Lars Linsen

Abstract

Spatio-temporal simulation ensembles are used to investigate the dependence of the simulation behavior on input parameters. Running simulations for a large number of input parameter settings is computationally expensive. We propose a scheme for exploring the parameter space using predictions of simulation outcomes and estimating the uncertainty in the predictions. The prediction approximates the simulation result by interpolating feature vectors of existing runs. The feature vectors are used to compute similarities between simulation runs facilitating visualization of the entire ensemble within a 2D (or 1D-over-time) multi-dimensional scaling embedding. Uncertainties of the prediction are computed based on distance, interpolation and diversity, which are visually encoded by an uncertainty band in the embedding. To guide the user to choose suitable parameter settings for prediction, we also propose a parameter-space visualization of the uncertainty. The approach is applied to real-world data simulating deep-water impact of asteroids.
