Conference paper
Part of the Focus on Computer Graphics book series (FOCUS COMPUTER)

Abstract

This paper summarises the author’s views on current developments in interactive scientific visualisation. It is based on a talk presented at the Eurographics ’89 conference, held in Hamburg in September 1989. The paper takes issue with the direction of some current work and identifies axeas where new ideas are needed. It has three main sections: data presentation methods, current visualisation system architectures, and a new approach based on parallel processing.
