Marcus D. Hanwell will be presenting on Big Data Visualization Frameworks and Applications at Kitware
Abstract: Kitware develops permissively licensed open source frameworks and applications for scientific data applications, and related areas. Some of the frameworks developed by our High Performance Computing and Visualization group address current challenges in big data visualization and analysis in a number of application domains including geospatial visualization, social media, finance, chemistry, biological (phylogenetics), and climate. The frameworks used to develop solutions in these areas will be described, along with the applications and the nature of the underlying data. These solutions focus on shared frameworks providing data storage, indexing, retrieval, client-server delivery models, server-side serial and parallel data reduction, analysis, and diagnostics. Additionally, they provide mechanisms that enable server-side or client-side rendering based on the capabilities and configuration of the system.
