Hypercube is based on a regular grid concept. This has the advantage
of allowing for simple book keeping, lower graphic card requirements, and
makes it more amenable to interaction with applications/approaches that rely
on regular sampled functions. It has the disadvantage of not allowing data that
does not fit either its grid or line (through pick-sets) data concept. Hypercube
now allows the grid to be rotated along any plane. The rotation amounts
to rotating the griding of the data. The
e basic slice viewer concept
As a result, if you rotated your view
by 45 degrees you would see a single trace at the edge of the cube.
Figure 1 demonstrates this concept.
