The Institute for Data Analysis and Visualization (IDAV) consists of six faculty members and approximately 30 researchers and graduate students all working on interdisciplinary problems in visualization, geometric modeling, computer graphics, computational geometry, graphics architecture, and immersive technologies. We are key partners in SDAV, a DoE SciDAC III Scalable Data Analysis an Visualization Center, and in the IRTG, an International Research Training Group based at the Technical University of Kaiserslautern in Germany. We are an internationally recognized leader in the fields of visualization and computer graphics, addressing problems that range from the multiresolution display of very large-scale data, to the discovery of new visual analysis algorithms, to the design of methods to accelerate the use of graphics hardware.

Query-Driven Visualization of Time-Varying Adaptive Mesh
Luke Gosink, John C. Anderson, E. Wes Bethel, Ken Joy

We present a new approach that enables query-driven analysis and multitemporal visualization of time-varying AMR data. Previously, such analysis and visualization efforts were hindered by the dynamic temporal and spatial properties of AMR grid hierarchies. We present a two-step method for compositing and synchronizing AMR data from a series of timesteps. We first generate a composite template from the AMR grid hierarchies of these ... [more]
