A typogram is a word that is written in such a manner that it illustrates what it means. Examples of typograms used to describe complex structures were created manually by Aaron Kuehn . However, the scalability of such approaches to very complex structures and the time and effort that need to be spent on the manual creation of typograms are prohibiting for widespread use.
In this project, we would like to investigate a computer-aided, automated approach for the generation of complex typograms that represent thousands of labels. The generated typograms should also provide an “optimal” view into complex 3D structures (we could start with anatomical structures, but we are not strictly bound to anatomy).
• Interest and knowledge in visualization and labeling techniques.
• Good programming skills.
• Creativity and enthusiasm.
To be discussed (depending on the background of the student).
