PacificVis best paper award

Joint work between TU Eindhoven and the giCentre has won Best Paper at IEEE PacificVis in Yokohama, Japan. The paper presents a new way of schematising maps using curved edges that preserve the relative area of features.

The technique offers new design possibilities for geovisualization  that improve upon traditional automated simplification routines.
