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

This paper acts a pointer to different research areas depending on the reader's interest. The visuals provided in this paper are very interesting and serves as a backbone in understating the areas. The paper is based on geometric flow visualization. It is in fact flooded with the information regarding that.

The jargon's like streamline, streak line are difficult for a novice reader like me. Some sort of description or examples should have been give to those which would have helped me in understanding. The description of various techniques to perform geometric visualization is very impressive. I see that flow visualization has lots of practical usages.

The fact that the last research was done six years back in this field shocked me. It is interesting to know how the challenges like huge amount data can effect the visualization as well how algorithms try to overcome that issue. The differentiation between interactive and automatic seeding is well done. I like the way overall seeding algorithm is presented.

There has been a healthy discussion at every point of the paper. Overall the paper give a good insight about the research done in the last two decades in this field.
