18
Sauber et al.: Multifield-Graphs Definitions: –A correlation field C N with N {1... n} is a scalar field which contains the local correlation of the fields in N –Local correlation := similar local changes –Example: C {012} contains local correlation between the fields S 0, S 1, and S 2 Correlation fields

19
Sauber et al.: Multifield-Graphs Computation of local correlation with an arbitrary local correlation measure –Region based –Point based We used a measure based on gradients –Local –Important feature –Independent of scalar values Correlation fields

20

25
Sauber et al.: Multifield-Graphs It is not possible to examine all correlation fields, because of their exponential number => get overview with Multifield-Graph Goal show the core information of many correlation Fields –Reduce information of every correlation field to an Icon Multifield-Graph

26
Sauber et al.: Multifield-Graphs Icons show: –Disc Size: volume percentage of high correlation (correlation value above a threshold θ) Color: average value of these highly correlated values –Label: Identities of corresponding scalar Fields Color coding –Average correlation values Multifield-Graph Threshold θ

27
Sauber et al.: Multifield-Graphs The Multifield-Graph G = (V,E) consists of: –Nodes V = Icons represent correlation fields of sets of fields –Edges E: visualize subset relationships of correlation fields Multifield-Graph

28
Sauber et al.: Multifield-Graphs Multifield-Graph Multifield-Graph of n=6 fields –Subset relationships (dark background and edges) Focus on correlation fields with high correlation: –High percentage of correlating values –High average correlation

29
Sauber et al.: Multifield-Graphs Computation of the Multifield-Graph: –Choose a similarity threshold θ –For each correlation field: Count the number points above θ Compute average value of these points Multifield-Graph

30
Sauber et al.: Multifield-Graphs Computation time depends on –The Number of input fields –Size of fields –Correlation measure Optimization –Similarity measure = minimum of pair similarities => compute and store only pair correlation fields –Perform sub-sampling Example: –Multifield-Graph computation of 6 fields 250x250x50: 1 minute Multifield-Graph
