Tackling the Occlusion Problem in 3D Grids
Occlusion is one of the major challenges in 3D grids. In this thesis we present different approaches to tackle the problem of occlusion in 3D grids. In order to visualize occluded objects some techniques remove a portion of the remaining grid (the occluding part) while others keep all the data exposing the occluded objects by splitting and shifting the remaining grid. In this work we propose the use of the Cutaway Views technique to improve the inspection and analysis of grid cells in Corner-Point grids, and we also present a system for creating interactive Exploded View Diagrams in generalized 3D grids.
