Brian J. d'Auriol, Tuyen Nguyen, Thuy Pham, Sungyoung Lee, and Young-Koo Lee "Viewer Perception of Superellipsoid-Based Accelerometer Visualization Techniques", Proceedings of The 2008 International Conference on Modeling, Simulation and Visualization Methods (MSV'08), part of WORLDCOMP'08, July 14 - 17, 2008, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA. pp. 129-135.

Viewer perceptions of superellipsoid-based glyphs representing trend analysis of tri-axial accelerometer data are studied in this paper. A trend analysis and its mapping to the superellipsoid parameters is proposed. Detailed results from a viewer survey about the usefulness of such glyphs are presented. Survey results indicate that approximately 60% of the respondents correctly identified the trend-related information and as much as an additional 27.2% acceptably identified some of the trend-related information. Overall, respondents indicated that the superellipsoid-based glyphs were helpful to understand accelerometer multi-plots.
