    • The advent of GPU ray tracers 

      Kroeze, J C W; Jordaan, D B; Pretorius, P (IBIMA, 2010)
      Ever since it's introduction in 1980 the ray tracing algorithm has been a tricky puzzle. On the one hand it offers photo-realistic rendering superior to the more common rasterization algorithm, but on the other it's much ...
    • The application of water poverty mapping in water management 

      Van der Vyver, C; Jordaan, D B (North-West University, 2012)
      Water management has been carried out for many centuries wherever there has been a need to provide water to large numbers of people. Complex social norms have developed around water management and competing users have ...
    • Benchmarking for ray tracing performance measurement 

      Kroeze, J C W; Jordaan, D B; Pretorius, P (IBIMA, 2010)
      During the past thirty years, researchers have greatly sped up the naïve ray tracing algorithm. However, the methods used to measure and compare their diverse algorithms have remained ad-hoc. This makes it difficult to ...
