Models and Algorithms for Visualization and Rendering
The MAVERICK project is both a team of INRIA Grenoble Rhône-Alpes and of the the LJK laboratory, a joint research unit of CNRS, INPG, UJF and UPMF. It is located at INRIA Grenoble Rhône-Alpes research center in Montbonnot, France.
Maverick deals with image synthesis methods. We place ourselves at the end of the image production pipeline, when the pictures are generated and displayed. We take many possible inputs: datasets, video flows, pictures and photographs, (animated) geometry from a virtual world... We produce as output pictures and videos.
These pictures will be viewed by humans, and we consider this fact as an important point of our research strategy, as it provides the benchmarks for evaluating our results: the pictures and animations produced must be able to convey the message to the viewer. The actual message depends on the specific application: data visualization, exploring virtual worlds, designing paintings and drawings... Our vision is that all these applications share common research problems: ensuring that the important features are perceived, avoiding cluttering or aliasing, efficient internal data representation, etc.
Computer Graphics, and especially Maverick is at the crossroad between fundamental research and industrial applications. We are both looking at the constraints and needs of applicative users and targeting long term research issues such as sampling and filtering.
