Abstract
This work presents a method for generating intuitive visualizations for high-level user queries to an hierarchical
surface-based neuroanatomical atlas. We combine a spreading activation approach for computing focus and con-
text in an ontology with a specific level-of-detail strategy for hierarchical structures. We demonstrate our method
on an atlas of the bee brain.
