Bandwidth-Efficient Parallel Visualization for Mobile Devices

Andreas Helfrich-Schkarbanenko, Vincent Heuveline, Roman Reiner, Sebastian Ritterbusch
For visual analysis of large numerical simulations on mobile devices, we introduce a remote parallelizable visual-ization method for low-bandwidth and high-latency networks. Based on a mathematical model for multi-layered planar impostor representation of arbitrary complex and unbounded scenes, we derive optimal impostor placement from a derived metric. Using stochastic usage models, we prove the optimal bandwidth consumption order for choosing corresponding viewport impostor sets, leading to
