The global visualization of vortex systems of pitching wings is explored. The topological law that vortex strands need to be connected aids in comprehending the visualized vortex systems and in assessing the quality of visualization. Viscous and viscous-turbulent diffusion facilitate the reconnection of vortex strands.
