NSERC & Graphics Lab: Cell Projection
Cell Projection Explained
The goals of this research project are twofold.
During the first stage of the project the student will get to know
concepts of rendering of volumetric data sets, which are common in
medical as well as computational applications. The study of
fundamental papers and literature in that area will build on
knowledge gathered in Computer Graphics courses such as CMPT361.
In the second part of the project the student will implement
algorithms for rendering non-uniform grids adapted to a variety of
hexagonal grids. These grids have (so far) not been used in Volume
Graphics, although they have been shown to be more efficient than
the commonly used Cartesian grids. Our research group is
developing a pipeline of graphics algorithms solely based on
hexagonal grids. During this project the student will be working
with the graduate students in our research group within the
"Graphics, Usability, and Visualization Lab" (GrUVi Lab) at SFU.
