Description

The Data group provides data analysis and visualization support to its customers. This consists primarily of the development and support of VisIt, a data analysis and visualization tool. Support ranges from answering questions about the tool, providing classes on how to use the tool, and performing data analysis and visualization for customers. The Information Management and Graphics Group supports and develops tools that enhance our ability to access, display, and understand large, complex data sets. Activities include applying visualization software for terascale data exploration; running two video production labs; supporting graphics libraries and tools for end users; maintaining PowerWalls and ... continued below

Description

The Data group provides data analysis and visualization support to its customers. This consists primarily of the development and support of VisIt, a data analysis and visualization tool. Support ranges from answering questions about the tool, providing classes on how to use the tool, and performing data analysis and visualization for customers. The Information Management and Graphics Group supports and develops tools that enhance our ability to access, display, and understand large, complex data sets. Activities include applying visualization software for terascale data exploration; running two video production labs; supporting graphics libraries and tools for end users; maintaining PowerWalls and assorted other displays; and developing software for searching, managing, and browsing scientific data. Researchers in the Center for Applied Scientific Computing (CASC) work on various projects including the development of visualization techniques for terascale data exploration that are funded by the ASC program, among others. The researchers also have LDRD projects and collaborations with other lab researchers, academia, and industry. During the past year we have completed our visualization cluster strategy of converting to Opteron/IB clusters. We support a 128-node Opteron/IB cluster providing a visualization production server for our unclassified systems and a 256-node Opteron/IB cluster for the classified systems, as well as several smaller clusters to drive the PowerWalls. We are in the process of updating projectors for one of the PowerWalls and acquiring new fiber modems for another. We deployed a 150 TB NFS server to provide dedicated storage for data analysis and visualization for our unclassified visualization server. The IMG group is located in the Terascale Simulation Facility, home to BGL, Purple, and Atlas, which includes both classified and unclassified visualization theaters, a visualization computer floor and deployment workshop, and video production labs. We continued to provide the traditional graphics group consulting and video production support. We maintained five PowerWalls and a host of other displays.
