Top Scientific Visualization Research Problems

The Top Scientific Visualization Research Problems list has been compiled by Chris Johnson – University of Utah and published in IEEE CG&A July/August 2004 p. 13-17.

Hopefully this list here will motivate me to collect possible research themes for my work acting as a spark plug for new ideas.

1.Think about the science

OK, accepted. Now I’m concentrating on how a chemists work, their usual problems that visualization can help solving.

2.Quantify effectiveness

TBD

3.Represent errors and uncertainty

It is something absolutely ignored in chemistry visualization. I’ll need to learn how is uncertainly recorded in chemistry data.

4.Perceptual issues

At least I’m thinking about this point.

5.Efficiently utilizing novel hardware architectures

TBD

6.Human-computer interaction

TBD

7.Global/local visualization (details within context)

TBD

8.Integrated problem-solving environments

TBD

9.Multifield visualization

TBD

10.Integrating scientific and information visualization

TBD

11.Feature detection

TBD

12.Time-dependent visualization

TBD

13.Scalable, distributed, and grid-based visualization

TBD

14.Visual abstractions

TBD

15.Theory of visualization

TBD
