The mission of the visualization group within advanced applications support is to facilitate the understanding of simulated phenomena by applied investigation of data representation techniques. The group is responsible for providing technical expertise and assistance to computational scientists and researchers desiring to represent and analyze data generated by computational models.
The group supports a variety of commercial visualization packages available on NCSA's high-end computing platforms. Staff works with users to identify the best tools for their needs and assists in effective operation of the software. Supported software
The group provides custom visualization solutions for researchers on NCSA's high-end computing platforms to explore effective methods of data representation techniques that maximize insight and understanding of complex phenomena. This exploration incorporates an awareness and consideration of representation methods that leverage innate channels of communication associated with the assimilation of information. Examples
The group provides visualization and graphics consulting services including phone/email consultation, training, education, and outreach. Staff also assist in generating publication-quality imagery and animations for posters, papers, and journal articles.
