INFOSAW

INFOSAW

Systems for the surveillance of tunnels utilize various sensor data to inform operators in case of emergency situations. In many disaster scenarios, however, avalanches of alarm messages are generated within a short time. This makes it difficult or even impossible for operators to maintain an overview of the situation and to react appropriately. The goal of the project INFOSAW is to significantly increase the situation awareness of operators even in disaster scenarios by providing a system that combines intelligent data processing with innovative visualization techniques.

Knowledge Assisted Visual Fusion of Spatial Multi-Source Data (KAFus)

Knowledge Assisted Visual Fusion of Spatial Multi-Source Data (KAFus)

This project addresses one of the current challenges faced in industry and research: the intelligent fusion of information available in multi‐dimensional multi‐source datasets of a spatial‐temporal object or phenomenon to gain new insights and knowledge on complex biological and technical systems. Examples of our industrial partners for such tasks are extraction, fusion and representation of diagnostic relevant information from intra‐patient and time‐dependent data on anatomy, function, metabolism, cellular and molecular structure of one organ; the fusion of CAD data with time‐dependent simulation results and the context aware visualization of automatically extracted relevant features; the feature and object driven visual representation and search of huge databases containing 3D image and geometry data as well as spatial related textual information on the neural structure of the fruit fly drosophila melanogaster. Goal of this project is the investigation and development of effective, application‐ and user centered data fusion, visualization, and exploration methods for analysis of high dimensional data from multiple sources.

Semantic Steering

Semantic Steering

The project Semantic Steering targets a novel integrated steering system called "Visdom" to support the user in the decision making process. The developed concepts enable users to interact with a remote simulation system based on their understanding and to examine alternative scenarios in a short period of time. This is accomplished by combining simulation and visualization into a single, modular and extensible environment.

VICEWORK

VICEWORK

The project VICEWORK will research how to make interactive visual analysis a core concept integrating different steps of workflows. The overall objective is to significantly reduce time (and thus costs) for selected tasks of the involved company partners as compared to current workflows. The project addresses five scientific research topics: 1) analyzing families of functions with complex characteristics, 2) an integrated tool chain, 3) a situation-sensitive user interface, 4) decision making in collaborative workshops, 5) and a tight integration of statistical and visual approaches.

ENERVIS

ENERVIS

The project ENERVIS will research ways to address various tasks in the energy sector by applying and extending techniques from interactive visual analysis.

“King is who owns the data” - this saying is not true anymore. Nowadays data is abundant, often automatically generated. The real challenge is to extract relevant information from the data, because information is needed to make decisions in a complex world.
