StarVis - Visualizing morphometric differences between geographical populations

StarVis is an application for explorative investigation of similarities in morphometric attributes between different geographical populations. The multitude of attributes are visualized using glyph representations overlaid onto a geographic map. To reduce the complexity of such visualizations StarVis provides different types of glyphs whose presentation can be interactively adjusted for investigation of correlations between attributes and geographic locations.

This work is part of the project "Shape Analysis and Interactive Shape Space Exploration".

Responsible for development is Max Hermann.
