Paper Abstract

Texture-based correspondence display is a methodology to display corresponding data elements in visual representations of complex multidimensional, multivariate data. A visual representation model is the abstract pattern used to transform numerical data to an image. It is challenging to develop visual representation models for multidimensional, multivariate data that are at once a comprehensive representation of the data and visually simple enough as to avoid confusion. Using multiple images increases the degrees of freedom of data representation with color or location serving as a means to show correspondence of the information among the images. The correspondence display techniques described utilize texture as a persistent medium to contain a visual representation model and as a means to create multiple renditions of data where color is used to identify correspondence. These techniques allow corresponding data elements to be displayed over a variety of visual metaphors in a normal rendering process without the addition of extraneous linking metadata creation and maintenance. Texture-based correspondence display extends the effectiveness of visual representation for understanding data to the understanding and creation of visual representation models.
