Data visualisation (applying advanced algorithms and computer graphics to data) allows researchers to better understand their raw data and translate it into meaningful forms.
Applying visualisation techniques to complicated datasets can require specialist hardware, such as high-end graphics cards for handling large datasets in real time, novel display technologies to fully exploit the human visual system and user interface devices to facilitate the interaction.
The Pawsey Supercomputing Centre Visualisation team provides a package of hardware, software and expertise, to tackle the whole range of visualisation activities.
The team offers the following services to our researchers:
- Remote visualisation (Zeus and high-end Windows workstations)
- Large-scale visualisation on stereoscopic 3D displays
- Visualisation expertise
