Illustrative Molecular Visualization with Continuous Abstraction


Molecular systems may be visualized with various degrees of structural abstraction, support of spatial perception, and 'illustrativeness.' In this work we propose and realize methods to create seamless transformations that allow us to affect and change each of these three parameters individually. The resulting transitions give viewers a dedicated control of abstraction in illustrative molecular visualization and, consequently, allow them to seamlessly explore the resulting abstraction space for obtaining a fundamental understanding of molecular systems. We show example visualizations created with our approach and report informal feedback on our technique from domain experts.
