Waltz Quick Start

Roberts, Jonathan C. (1996) Waltz Quick Start. Technical report. UKC, Computing Laboratory, University of Kent, Canterbury, Kent, CT2 7NF, UK (KAR id:21317)


The Waltz Quick Start document describes by diagrams the important functions of the Waltz Visualization System. Waltz is a tool to visualize three dimensional data and reads special reference files containing details of the data file, path name, dimensions and aspect ratios of the data. Waltz (as the name suggests) contains three parts: Generalization, Specialization and Abstraction. The Generalization Process splits the data into spatially connected groups. A specialization is formed from a subset (selection) of these groups. The results are displayed in multiple abstract views of the same data. These abstractions are formed by losing or augmenting the data to facilitate in the understanding of the data.
