Projects: Computer Graphics - Color, Texture, Details, Points

Current projects include the example-based colorization of images and volumes, semantic and infinite zooms enabled by texture synthesis, size- and angle-preserving texturing of arbitrary objects, and point-based surface rendering (adding special effects, such as motion blur/hints), and interactive fly-throughs of realistic, large-scale urban environments (virtual Manhattan) at high-levels of detail (less than an inch resolution). These topics are also relevant in the context of illustrative (expressive) data and volume visualization.
