The contour tree is an important topological abstraction for visualizing scalar fields. I shall describe the contour tree itself, how it can be used as an index of individual contour surfaces, and how it can be used as the basis of an interface for interactive exploration of scalar fields.

Joint work with Jack Snoeyink and Michiel van de Panne.
