Stefan Bruckner, M. Eduard GröLler, Klaus Mueller, Bernhard Preim & Deborah Silver
Illustrative techniques are a new and exciting direction in visualization research. Traditional techniques which have been used by scientific illustrators for centuries are re-examined under the light of modern computer technology. In this paper, we discuss the use of the focus+context concept for the illustrative visualization of volumetric data. We give an overview of the state-of-the-art and discuss recent approaches which employ this concept in novel ways.
