  • A comparison of inhomogeneous magnetization transfer, myelin volume fraction, and diffusion tensor imaging measures in healthy children 

    Geeraert, Bryce L.; Lebel, Robert Marc; Mah, Alyssa C.; Deoni, Sean C. L.; Alsop, David C.; Varma, Gopal; Lebel, Catherine A. (Science, University of Calgary, 2017-09-12)
    Sensitive and specific biomarkers of myelin can help define baseline brain health and development, identify and monitor disease pathology, and evaluate response to treatment where myelin content is affected. Diffusion ...
  • You say Potato, I say Po-Data: Physical Template Tools for Visualization Authoring 

    Wun, Tiffany; Oehlberg, Lora A.; Sturdee, Miriam; Carpendale, Sheelagh (Department of Computer Science, University of Calgary, Science, Computer Science, University of Calgary, Pre-print, 2018-08-31)
    Providing data visualization authoring tools for the general public remains an ongoing challenge. Inspired by block-printing, we explore how visualization stamps as a physical visualization authoring tool could leverage ...
  • Astral: Prototyping Mobile and IoT Interactive Behaviours via Streaming and Input Remapping 

    Ledo, David; Vermeulen, Jo; Carpendale, Sheelagh; Greenberg, Saul; Oehlberg, Lora A.; Boring, Sebastian (Science, Computer Science, University of Calgary, Aarhus University, University of Copenhagen, 2018-07)
    We present Astral, a prototyping tool for mobile and Internet of Things interactive behaviours that streams selected desktop display contents onto mobile devices (smartphones and smartwatches) and remaps mobile sensor data ...
  • Quantification of peroxynitric acid and peroxyacyl nitrates using an ethane-based thermal dissociation peroxy radical chemical amplification cavity ring-down spectrometer 

    Taha, Youssef M.; Saowapon, Matthew T.; Assad, Faisal V.; Ye, Connie Z.; Chen, Xining; Garner, Natasha M.; Osthoff, Hans D. (Copernicus, Science, Chemistry, University of Calgary, https://www.atmospheric-measurement-techniques.net/about/licence_and_copyright.html, 2018-07-17)
    Peroxy and peroxyacyl nitrates (PNs and PANs) are important trace gas constituents of the troposphere which are challenging to quantify by differential thermal dissociation with NO2 detection in polluted (i.e., high-NOx) ...
  • Low levels of nitryl chloride at ground level: Nocturnal nitrogen oxides in the Lower Fraser Valley of British Columbia 

    Osthoff, Hans D.; Odame-Ankrah, Charles A.; Taha, Youssef M.; Tokarek, Travis W.; Schiller, Corinne L.; Haga, Donna; Jones, Keith H.; Vingarzan, Roxanne (Copernicus, Science, Chemistry, University of Calgary, Applied Science Division, Prediction and Services West, Meteorological Service of Canada, Environment and Climate Change Canada, Vancouver, British Columbia V6C 3S5, Canada, British Columbia Ministry of Environment and Climate Change Strategy, Cranbrook, British Columbia V1C 7G5, Canada, https://www.atmospheric-chemistry-and-physics.net/about/licence_and_copyright.html, 2018-05-04)
    The nocturnal nitrogen oxides, which include the nitrate radical (NO3), dinitrogen pentoxide (N2O5), and its uptake product on chloride containing aerosol, nitryl chloride (ClNO2), can have profound impacts on the lifetime ...
  • Chiral Separations Using a Modified Water Stationary Phase in Supercritical fluid Chromatography 

    Frantz, Jackson J.; Thurbide, Kevin B. (Springer, Science, Chemistry, University of Calgary, https://www.elsevier.com/about/policies, Post-print, 2018-07-03)
    A novel means of achieving chiral separations in supercritical fluid chromatography (SFC) using a water stationary phase is presented. By adding various chiral selectors to the phase, different chiral analytes can be readily ...
  • Making-With-Data: Supporting DIY Data Physicalizations 

    Wun, Tiffany; Oehlberg, Lora A.; Carpendale, Sheelagh (ACM, Science, Computer Science, University of Calgary, Publisher's version, 2018-04-22)
    We explore how DIY making techniques can support the democratization of data. We present two DIY data physicalizations: a CNC plotter for rapidly prototyping visualizations on paper, and a physical, dynamic bar chart of ...
  • Kalgan: Video Player for Casual Language Learning 

    Hu, Sathaporn "Hubert"; Willett, Wesley (ACM: Extended Abstracts of the 2018 CHI Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems, Science, Computer Science, University of Calgary, 2018-04-20)
    We present the initial design and evaluation of Kalgan, an interactive video player tailored to support casual language learning. Unlike traditional, more structured learning, casual language learning takes place alongside ...
  • Exploration & Anthropomorphism in Immersive Unit Visualizations 

    Ivanov, Alexander; Danyluk, Kurtis Thorvald; Willett, Wesley (ACM: Extended Abstracts of the 2018 CHI Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems, Science, Computer Science, University of Calgary, 2018-04-20)
    We report on an initial examination of the potential of immersive unit visualizations in virtual reality, showing how these visualizations can help viewers examine data at multiple scales and support affective, personal ...
  • Exploration Strategies for Discovery of Interactivity in Visualizations 

    Blascheck, Tanja; MacDonald Vermeulen, Lindsay; Vermeulen, Jo; Perin, Charles; Willett, Wesley; Ertl, Thomas; Carpendale, Sheelagh (IEEE Transactions on Visualization and Computer Graphics, Science, Computer Science, 2018-02-05)
    We investigate how people discover the functionality of an interactive visualization that was designed for the general public. While interactive visualizations are increasingly available for public use, we still know little ...
