Nonphotorealistic Rendering in Scientific Visualization

all day Monday  8-13-01, however this is just a few notes on Victoria Interrante's talk, which was excellent. 

The talk started with the motivation for NPR in SciViz. Drawing from many sources of illustrations from many disciples, Victoria showed the strengths and weaknesses of photos, shaded drawings, line and silhouette drawing and cartoon drawing. Depending on the task and information they all turn out to be best for somethings and much worse for others.

The primary use of NPR is to emphasize the important features and deemphasize the secondary details or remove them entirely.
