Abstract
As the complexity and scale of numerical simulation and experimentation increases, larger teams of researchers and scientists, located at geographically different sites, are required to address the resulting technical challenges. The success of research projects typically requires that such teams, with heterogeneous skills and resources, work together to address the technical challenges. Thus, collaborative research tools are required to share, visualize, manipulate, annotate, and compute the data. Furthermore, these tools must be easily deployed and used to facilitate the collaborative experience. This project will address these requirements by extending the widely-used open-source ParaView system to support large-scale, collaborative data visualization. Phase I identified the set of features required to create an effective collaborative system and demonstrated a functional two-person collaborative visualization environment. In Phase II, the visualization environment will be expanded to enable multiple researchers to simultaneously view, manipulate, and compute large data sets located at remote sites. In addition, synchronization and annotation methods will be developed to enable researchers to explore data locally and then rejoin the collaborative experience to share a common view. Commercial Applications and other Benefits as described by the awardee: The technology should generate sales of an expanded ParaView product, ParaView Professional, a supported and pre-packaged version of the open-source ParaView application
