Reaction: Over Two Decades of Integration-Based, Geometric Flow Visualization

This paper provides comprehensive information about the various approaches and trends over a period of last two decades but it also focuses on a new branch of visualization which deals with motion. It also covers a complete set of problems, solved or unsolved, in the field of geometric flow research. When it comes to motion we want to take into consideration the direction along with the magnitude. This paper introduces to us this new visualization called Flow Visualization. What I liked best about the paper is the fact that the authors have put in efforts to make this paper simple and easy to understand. The tabular overview of researches, the comparison between various methods, their advantages and disadvantages are some of the explicit features I liked about the paper.
To sum up it was a good paper to read because it took me to a new dimension of visualization and was different from the ones we have read so far.
