Reaction: Over Two Decades of Integration Based Geometric Flow Visualization

In this paper the authors present us with a new type of visualization called Flow Viz which is related to the fluid mechanics and how to get valuable data out of those flows. It was good to read after the previous paper on LIC which also talked about the concept of fluid mechanics.
This paper was pretty good to read with authors explaining very clearly that numerous techniques for visualizations are available today and it is to the user's preference that which technique to choose to. The paper is well written and well compiled.
There are challenges that flow viz faces and one of them is large set of data. I agree with the authors regarding the seeding problem. A big thanks to the authors for presenting this idea and making us aware of this type of visualization.
