Large Scale Visualization and Data Analysis with VisIt
SESSION: Large Scale Visualization and Data Analysis with VisIt
EVENT TYPE: Tutorials
TIME: 8:30AM - 5:00PM
Presenter(s):Cyrus Harrison, Jean M. Favre, Hank Childs, Dave Pugmire, Brad Whitlock, Harinarayan Krishnan
This full-day tutorial will provide attendees with a practical introduction to VisIt, an open source scientific visualization and data analysis application. VisIt is used to visualize simulation results on wide range of platforms from laptops to many of the world’s top supercomputers. This tutorial builds on the success of past VisIt tutorials with material updated to showcase the newest features and use cases of VisIt. We will show how VisIt supports five important scientific visualization scenarios: data exploration, quantitative analysis, comparative analysis, visual debugging, and communication of results. We begin with a foundation in basic principles and transition into several special topics and intermediate-level challenges. The last portion of the tutorial will discuss advanced VisIt usage and development, including writing new database readers, writing new operators, and how to couple VisIt with simulations executing on remote computers for in-situ visualization.
