Geodise / GEM Architecture
Visualisation Requirements Images / Animation Solution Data Filesize: up to 2 GB Mesh Data elements Filesize: 1kB – ~100 MB CAD Data Rotate, zoom, pan, select 3D, geometry repair; x/y/z coordinates, points, edges, faces, elements Rotate, zoom, pan, identify coordinates; vector plots, scalar colouring, particle traces Thumbnails, Movies, Videos Draw, define geometry, rotate, zoom, pan, add
Possible Solutions Open GL / Glut Java 3D Low Level Routines VTK Tool packages Open DX IRIS Explorer AVS Express Field View Visualisation Software Matlab, etc. Engineering Software Formats on the Web VRML SVG XML-based? … ? UK e-Science Programme
Discussion How is it done on the Grid? What data transfer mechanisms? –Where does data get stored? –Which formats / open standards? Software technology (Java, XML, …)? Server / Client infrastructure? –How can user interaction take place? –Is collaborative work possible?
