Navigation and Animation in a Volume Visualization System
The VolVis system for volume visualization supports numerous visualization algorithms and methods within a consistent and well-organized framework. Navigation and Animation components have been incorporated into VolVis which allow interactive object manipulation and quick specification of complex animation sequences. Navigation is controlled by a variety of 2D and 3D input devices. VolVis includes a unified protocol for communicating with these input devices, allowing for input device independent development.
