WT7: Visualization and Interaction
Work Task Leader: UNIGE
Main Contributors: CRS4, STAR
The goal of this WT is to develop effective visualization techniques and intuitive interaction techniques to better represent and interact with the functional models of the musculoskeletal system at a particular level of details. For this purpose, UNIGE develops with CRS4 and STAR a visualisation/ interaction framework to allow the individual examination of musculoskeletal systems in motion, merging several types of data (acquired and simulated) from the different partners. The medical relevance of the visualization/interaction techniques towards training and virtual examination are moreover assessed. Partners bring the following expertise to UNIGE:
CRS4 develops specific and highly efficient multimodal rendering techniques, to be integrated in the framework, in order to meet timing constraints during interactive task. CRS4 will provides their expertise in validating new visualization and interaction paradigms.
STAR will provide the semantic organization from WT6 for data retrieval.
