    Exploration of bat wing morphology through a strip method and visualization



    We present a visual exploration tool that facilitates biologists navigating through complex bat wing geometry by combining a novel modeling method and an interactive visualization approach. Our work contributes to the following: a new method to quantify the dynamic kinematics during flight, a new curve fitting method that measures camber, and a new tool for time-varying data visualization for biological knowledge discovery.
