Hey folks,

Hey folks,

We met yesterday and spoke about the following paper:

Healey, C. G. and Enns, J. T. "Large Datasets at a Glance: Combining Textures and Colors in Scientific Visualization." IEEE Transactions on Visualization and Computer Graphics 5, 2, (1999), 145-167.

The paper deals with a number of basic issues that have come up in our own work, including that by students Eric Price, Alex Kuhl, Ju Hee Bae and Matt Rakow.

Best,

Ben.
