Such effects reflect the tendency of humans to take the orthogonal rather than the vertical distance between two curves as their distance. In SineStream, we connect the readability of streamgraphs with minimizing sine illusions and by doing so provide a perceptual foundation for their design. As the geometry of a streamgraph is controlled by its baseline (the bottom-most curve) and the ordering of the layers, we re-interpret baseline computation and layer ordering algorithms in terms of reducing sine illusion effects. For baseline computation, we improve previous methods by introducing a Gaussian weight to penalize layers with large thickness changes. For layer ordering, three design requirements are proposed and implemented through a hierarchical clustering algorithm. Quantitative experiments and user studies demonstrate that SineStream improves the readability and aesthetics of streamgraphs compared to state-of-the-art methods.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dc:creator>Sedlmair, Michael</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Zhang, Quanjie</dc:creator> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:creator>Wang, Qianwen</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Bu, Chuan</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Zhang, Jian</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Deussen, Oliver</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Zhang, Jian</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Sedlmair, Michael</dc:contributor> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2021-02-19T12:31:06Z</dcterms:available> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource="https://rightsstatements.org/page/InC/1.0/"/> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2021-02-19T12:31:06Z</dc:date> <dcterms:issued>2021-02</dcterms:issued> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/36"/> <dcterms:title>SineStream : Improving the Readability of Streamgraphs by Minimizing Sine Illusion Effects</dcterms:title> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/36"/> <dc:contributor>Wang, Yunhai</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Wang, Qianwen</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Deussen, Oliver</dc:contributor> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/52938"/> <dc:creator>Bu, Chuan</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Zhang, Quanjie</dc:contributor> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
