Geometric Constructions

“Slide-Together” Geometric Paper Constructions George W. Hart Computer Science Dept. Stony Brook University Abstract Seven paper construction projects provide students with experience exploring properties and relationships of two-dimensional and three-dimensional geometric figures. “Slide-togethers” based on squares, triangles, pentagons, and decagons Introduction This activity consists of seven attractive constructions which are fun and relatively easy to make because one simply cuts out paper pieces and slides them together.

Each “slide-together” is made from identical copies of a single type of regular polygon (e.g., just squares or just triangles) with slits cut at the proper locations. “Slide-togethers” based on hexagons, decagrams, and pentagrams. The KnotPlot Site. Gnofract 4D: Superior Fractal Software : Home.

For any example, use your browser to view the source or the backing dataset. Protovis is no longer under active development.The final release of Protovis was v3.3.1 (4.7 MB). The Protovis team is now developing a new visualization library, D3.js, with improved support for animation and interaction. D3 builds on many of the concepts in Protovis; for more details, please read the introduction and browse the examples. Conventional While Protovis is designed for custom visualization, it is still easy to create many standard chart types. Area Charts Bar & Column Charts Scatterplots Pie & Donut Charts Line & Step Charts Stacked Charts Grouped Charts Custom Many charting libraries provide stock chart designs, but offer only limited customization; Protovis excels at custom visualization design through a concise representation and precise control over graphical marks.

Animating Water Using Flow Maps

So on the plane ride back from LA, I whipped up this little sample from what I could remember of the talk. Edit: You can find the talk here: The standard technique for animated water is scrolling normal maps, as I’ve previously written about. The problem with this is that it looks unnatural as water does not uniformly move in one direction. So Valve came up with the idea of using flow maps ( based on a flow viz paper from the mid 90s ). The Flow Map First we need to create a flow map. Using The Flow Map Now we need to use the flow map to alter the water normal maps. The graph illustrates that during a cycle time from 0 to 1, we want the layer to be fully interpolated at the mid-point in the cycle, and fully un-interpolated at 0 and 1.

In the code above, HalfCycle would be .5 if our cycle was from 0 to 1. 25 Beautiful Image Styling Tutorials With CSS,jQuery. Recently I wrote article about post thumbnail and you saw some great examples of image styling.
