ROOM:388

ABSTRACT:
Visualization and analysis plays a crucial role for scientific simulations as an enabling technology: exploring data, confirming hypotheses, and communicating results. This tutorial will focus on VisIt, an open source visualization and analysis tool designed for processing large data. The tool is intended for more than just visualization and is built around five primary use cases: data exploration, quantitative analysis, comparative analysis, visual debugging, and communication of results. VisIt has a client-server design for remote visualization, with a distributed memory parallel server. VisIt won an R&D 100 award in 2005, has been downloaded over 100,000 times, and is being developed by a large community. VisIt is used to visualization and analyze the results of hero runs on eight of the top twelve machines on top500.org. The tutorial will introduce VisIt and demonstrate basic usage of VisIt.
