  • Real-time visualization of massive imagery and volumetric datasets 

    Roth, Ian Joseph (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2006)
    The visualization of extremely large multi-dimensional datasets requires highly scalable geometric algorithms. We consider an algorithm to be scalable if its complexity remains constant independent of the size of the ...
  • Selected techniques for vehicle tracking and assessment in wide area motion imagery 

    Ganguli, Koyeli, 1980- (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2010)
    Tracking of vehicles in wide area motion imagery (WAMI) is very important for civilian and military surveillance. Tracking in a dataset that is characterized by very large format video with an extremely wide field -of-view ...
  • Sylview: a visualization system for forest management 

    Scott, Ian R. (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2006)
    In the field of forestry, the output of forest growth models provide a wealth of detailed information that can often be difficult to analyze and perceive due to presentation either as plain text summary tables or static ...
  • Thermal image analysis using calibrated video imaging 

    Li, Dong, 1972- (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2006)
    This research work introduces new techniques for temperature measurement that utilizes visual spectrum of light. A periscope with a CCD camera is used to capture the image from a high temperature gas fired furnace and ...
