Abstract:

This project developed effective visualization techniques for 2D technical data diagrams, such as schematicwiring diagrams for use in maintenance, repair, and training. The techniques have been integrated into the Schematic Diagram Visualization SDViz software system that has numerous features to aid in navigation, diagnosis of faults, and traversal of multiple linked diagrams. These features include highlighting relationships between components and connectors, maintaining context between several related diagrams, animation of electricalfluidair flow through the system, marking working status of componentssubcomponents, and improving navigation and linking of diagrams through the use of several distortion viewing techniques.
