Vector Glyphs for Surfaces: A Fast and Simple Glyph Placement Algorithm for Adaptive Resolution Meshes
Visualization of flow on boundary surfaces from computational flow dynamics (CFD) is challenging due to the complex, adaptive resolution nature of the meshes used in the modeling and simulation process. This paper presents a fast and simple glyph placement algorithm in order to investigate and visualize flow data based on unstructured, adaptive resolution boundary meshes from CFD. The algorithm has several advantages: (1) Glyphs are automatically placed at evenly-spaced intervals. (2) The user can interactively control the spatial resolution of the glyph placement and their precise location. (3) The algorithm is fast and supports multiresolution visualization of the flow at surfaces. The implementation supports multiple representations of the flow
