Annotation of 3D models

An existing tool annotates 3D models with polygons and labels. It makes use of the LibGDX Java library, which was designed for computer games. The 3D models that we are using, of Ancient Egyptian coffins, are becoming too big however to be handled by this library. The task would be to redesign the tool, but […]

The City and the Writer: Facilitating the Analysis of the Works by Ramón Gómez de la Serna

Spanish writer Ramón Gómez de la Serna (1888-1963) is the best-known avant-garde writer of Spanish 20th century literature, comparable to James Joyce or Marcel Proust. An extraordinarily prolific writer, his complete works reach more than 20.000 pages (including novels, essays, plays, and collections of maxims), and yet, a big amount of his writings, those published […]

Supporting the Visual Analysis of Physical Performance Data

The regular analysis of physical performance data is key to every physical training and exercise plan. However, we are still lacking tools that allow for a customized analysis of such data by athletes and trainers, on an individual basis, and across one or many teams. The University of St Andrews Strength and Conditioning Team (S&C) […]

Visualisation toolkit to bridge data and deep learning

This project aims to design and develop a web application to visualise sensor data, which will be processed and analysed by deep learning techniques, including convolutional neural networks and RNNs. The feedback from the deep learning techniques, such as the prediction accuracy, will help human to evaluate the quality of data and effectiveness of the […]

Visualising Sorting

Sort algorithms can greatly vary in complexity, and their mechanisms and complexity are often difficult to understand for lay-people (including students who are just starting to learn the fundamentals of computer science). This project will explore visualisation as a means to make the principles of different sort algorithms more transparent and, in this way, also […]

Our Past, our Future: Visualising Alumni Records of the University of St Andrews

As the third oldest university in the English speaking world, the University of St Andrews has a long history of attracting students from all over the world to receive their education. MUSA – the Museum of the University of St Andrews – is currently looking for ways to help museum visitors to discover and explore […]

Designing Graph Visualizations to Support the Navigation of Learning Material

As part of an ongoing research project, we have developed ViLO, an interactive online visual learning resource aimed to help students to learn about programming concepts. ViLO visually presents programming concepts and connections between them in order to support open-ended explorations and navigation of learning material. However, our current visualization has many flaws. For example, […]

Dynamics of Wikipedia Subnetworks

Wikipedia is the biggest encyclopedia ever created and it is in continuous evolution. Volodymyr Miz et al [1] created and made available tools that allow the analysis and visualisation of the Wikipedia graph. A detailed explanation of their work can be found in this blog post [2]. This project will explore how some regions of […]

Improving the prediction of cancer outcomes

Genes control how our cells work by making proteins that have specific functions and act as messengers for the cell. Each gene must have the correct instructions for making its protein. This protein will then be able perform the correct function for the cell. All cancers begin when one or more genes in a cell […]
