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

The first section in the paper discusses more about the flow visualization techniques. With the improved power of infrastructure like GPU they have achieved a very wonderful result in visualizing them. The author goes through the major challenges faced in the paper like large data sets,interaction ,computation time, perception , classification etc. These were some of the question I had raised while reading the previous papers and so I can see that the paper has given a good justice to go through all aspects of volume visualization and info viz in general.

I would have liked if the wind direction imagery had some influence of LIC , as it would have given more reality to the viz. The paper gave insight into some of the terminologies like streamline and critical point. The study for reducing the occlusion problems and possibility of representing these in 3D would be some future work which could be done on the CFD area. So that it would help simulating fluid motion in medical, mechanical or aviation fields.
