Reaction: A Survey of Algorithms for Volume Visualization

This paper provide lot of knowledge about different volume rendering techniques along with their trade offs. It was good to read the so-called foundation algorithms in the field of volume visualization. The paper is very well compiled and organized and this make it easier to grasp the information given in it. Some of the techniques like feature extraction, nullify certain pixels, noise cancellation were fairly easy to understand as I have already used them in one of my projects called 'Iris Recognition system'. I liked and totally agree with the portion of the paper which talks about the importance of data collection and classification when it comes to volume rendering. Also having read marching cubes in one of the other papers made it quick to go through this chunk of the paper. Overall I found this paper to be very useful and informative.
