Paper Abstract

The color icon harnesses color and texture perception to create integrated displays of two- dimensional multiparameter distributions. We have redesigned the color icon. The new design increases the number of parameters that can be integrated. It also extends the icon from two dimensions to three dimensions (which increases the number of parameters that can be integrated even further). To facilitate comparison with other iconographic approaches, we have incorporated the color icon as one of several other icons within our NewExvis environment. Finally, we have implemented a parallel version on a proprietary multiprocessor architecture. We describe the new design; the main issues, considerations, and features of the parallel implementation; and a few application examples.
