Abstract

Highly elaborated visualization techniques that are based on surfaces often are independent from the origin of the surface data. For re-using advanced visualization methods for surfaces of various kind, we developed an abstract surface interrogation layer called Smurf. In this paper we discuss the steps necessary to unify multiple types of surfaces under a shared general purpose interface.
