Raster Data

In CHiSEL any information or data related to a particular object is organized in two different kinds of data layers: raster and vector. Raster layers allow to bind information to small parts of the 3D surface. This partition is determined by a set of cells whose size could be previously configured.

Rendering Information

CHiSEL allows information layers to be directly visualized on the artefact surface. In this way, the spatial distribution of data provides experts with additional information to improve data analysis.

By combining two or more layers, information attributes are clearer exposed to the expert who may now discover new relationships among them.

Additionally, some parameters, including information colour mapping, alpha blending, data filtering, or SQL queries, could be configured to determine how each layer should be visualized.
