Abstract
The term 'field' is used herein to refer to a process which associates a physical quantity with each point in a region of space. Fields can be scalar, vector, or tensor valued. Until recently, the commonly used methods for visualizing results of field analyses have tended to over-emphasize the typically discrete nature of analysis output. In contrast, emphasis in this paper is placed on the continuous nature of fields. Test results of an experimental system described herein suggest that interactive feature extraction may become more important than traditional 'batch process' oriented approaches to post-analysis visualization. Accordingly, users will need to be given a lot more freedom and flexibility to seek out those features of a given field that they consider important and useful.
