Abstract

Visualization became an important branch of scientific research during the past decade. Some topics of visualization, for example, flow visualization and volume visualization, already provide lots of high-quality solutions to the most important problems. Others as, e.g., information visualization, are rather young disciplines which continuously provide lots of new advances. One such topic is the visualization over the Internet. Quite a number of approaches emerged during the last two years which facilitate this idea and embed the World Wide Web into the visualization process. Another trend in visualization is collaborative visualization within an augmented reality setup. Users exploit real 3D interaction and augmented reality to combine communication and investigation during research or education. Thirdly, the visualization of multi-dimensional and multi-modal data is a rather hot challenge to current scientific research. Coping with the restriction of just a few dimensions for representing visualization results is a big open problem in visualization and currently subject to eager research.
