Projects

With our expertise, we are currently contributing to a number of research projects. While fundamental research is supported by public funding agencies, applied research is funded by industry. Our current projects are listed here, completed projects can be found at the end of this page.

iV-Morph

Interactive Visual Metamorphosis for Multi-view Data Exploration

DFG grant (to be started)

Interactive Visual Metamorphosis for Multi-view Data Exploration

Interactive visual metamorphosis investigates a new way for interactive data exploration: Instead of looking at multiple static views in parallel, users will smoothly travel between dynamically changing views. During this traveling, users will accumulate the insight necessary to comprehensively understand the data. Visual and conceptual gaps between non-trivial visualization views are narrowed by employing smooth display transitions that transform one visual representation into another one. Through the visual part of the metamorphosis, it will be easier for users to transfer insights from one visual representation to another. The interaction part will allow user to control and steer the metamorphosis.

VARDO

Visual Analysis of Retinal Data for Ophthalmology

Cooperation project University Medical Clinic, Rostock, Prof. O. Stachs (planned)

Visual Analysis of Retinal Data for Ophthalmology

In this project, we develop novel visual analytics methods for retinal layers in OCT data. Our research focus is threefold. First, we focus on interactive visual exploration of early retinal changes, their comparison with normative data, and automated quantification of diagnosis-relevant information. Second, we consider temporal aspects of the data in the context of longitudinal studies. Third, we provide guidance when switching the analysis between individual patients, multiple patient groups, or different granularities of data presentation.

Seq-iA

Immersive Analytics in Next-Generation Sequencing for Tumor Diagnostics

Cooperation project University Medical Clinic, Rostock, PD Dr. H. Escobar (ongoing)

Immersive Analytics in Next-Generation Sequencing for Tumor Diagnostics

In modern genetic diagnostics, next-generation sequencing has revolutionized the assessment of various genetic diseases. Conventional approaches to sequence analysis quickly reach their limits due to the complexity and diversity of the data. In this project, novel immersive analytics methods are investigated to support DNA sequence analysis in tumor diagnostics. Modern interaction and display technologies are used to support analytical inference from such complex data. Immersion in virtual data worlds not only enhances the analysis experience and engagement, but also provides a natural access to the large datasets of DNA sequences produced by next-generation sequencing.

EVOCATION

Advanced Visual and Geometric Computing for 3D Capture, Display and Fabrication

EU MCSA-ITN (2019-2023)

Advanced Visual and Geometric Computing for 3D Capture, Display and Fabrication

EVOCATION is a leading European-wide doctoral consortium for research in Advanced Visual and Geometric Computing for 3D Capture, Display, and Fabrication. The project will train the next generation of creative, entrepreneurial and innovative experts who will be equipped with the necessary skills and competences to face current and future major challenges in scalable and high-fidelity shape and appearance acquisition, extraction of structure and semantic information, processing, visualization, 3D display and 3D fabrication in professional and consumer applications.
