Reaction: Imaging Vector Fields Using Line Integral Convolution

Line integral convolution represents a new an general method for imaging two and three dimensional vector fields. Using vector fields to draw imagery was an interesting read. The picture of the flower , wind velocity and fluid dynamics  were good examples to understand the  concepts of DDA and LIC. The author himself says a fourth order Runge Kutta method could produce differing or improved results. So it would be nice if the paper could have gone more in detail to all the possibilities of the mathematical methods possible.

It was interesting to know that visualization was interest of study to fields like fluid dynamics. Hopefully we would be able to see more accurate and better algorithms and deblurring techniques when research goes further in future.
