Abstract

As cutaway occlusion management techniques are always bound to a certain degree of information loss and other occlusion management solutions do not always yield good results, specifically in regards to dense molecular assemblies like the ones displayed in CellVIEW. This makes it desirable to devise a strategy which optimizes cutaway techniques to retain more information. SirTom focuses on retaining as much information about structures inside such assemblies as possible by creating a cutaway strategy that opts to give them a mesh-like appearance. This is done by creating a mesh and then deciding via probability which molecules are more likely to retain this information in a pseudo-random fashion. SirTom grants the possibility to gain insight with less removed particles and is such a helpful algorithm for visualizing occluding surface structures.
