Effective HPC Visualization and Data Analysis using VisIt

SESSION: Effective HPC Visualization and Data Analysis using VisIt

EVENT TYPE: Tutorials

TIME: 1:30PM - 5:00PM

Presenter(s):Cyrus Harrison, Jean M. Favre, Hank Childs, Harinarayan Krishnan, Brad Whitlock


Visualization is an essential component of the scientific discovery process. Scientists and businesses running HPC simulations leverage visualization tools for data exploration, quantitative analysis, visual debugging, and communication of results. This half-day tutorial will provide attendees with a practical introduction to mesh-based HPC visualization using VisIt, an open source parallel scientific visualization and data analysis platform. We will provide a foundation in basic HPC visualization practices and couple this with hands-on experience creating visualizations. This tutorial includes: 1) An introduction to visualization techniques for mesh-based simulations. 2) A guided tour of VisIt. 3) Hands on demonstrations of end-to-end visualizations of both a fluid simulation and climate simulation. This tutorial builds on the past success of VisIt tutorials, updated and anchored with new concrete use cases. Attendees will gain practical knowledge and recipes to help them effectively use VisIt to analyze data from their own simulations.
