Scalar Topological Visualisation
Scalar Topological Visualization
Once the contour tree has been computed, it can be used as the basis for user interfaces for scalar fields (most typically in 3D).
This is effective because branches in the tree correspond to features in the data, an observation that is crucial for visualization.
Of course, this involved solving secondary problems, such as simplification of the contour tree (IEEE Visualization 2019 Test of Time Award):
and layout algorithms for displaying large contour trees:
But led to further interfaces, supporting direct volume rendering:
and level set segmentation:
