About Visualisation


A petascale supercomputer enables a researcher to generate and subsequently analyse data of unprecedented size and complexity, but this is only the first step in the research process.

Data visualisation (the process of applying advanced algorithms and computer graphics to data) allows researchers to better understand their raw data and translate it into meaningful forms.

The Pawsey Supercomputing Centre Visualisation team provides a package of hardware, software and expertise, to tackle the whole range of visualisation activities that are relevant to the Pawsey Supercomputing Centre user community.
