Escape Maps

IEEE Transactions on Visualization and Computer Graphics, vol. 20, no. 12, pp. 2604–2613, 2014.


We present a technique to visualize the streamline-based mapping between the boundary of a simply-connected subregion of arbitrary 3D vector fields. While the streamlines are seeded on one part of the boundary, the remaining part serves as escape border. Hence, the seed... [More ...]
