Dave DeMarle from Kitware and Alan Scott from Sandia National Labs will be teaching a tutorial titled ‘Large Scale Visualization with ParaView 3.10’ on Monday, June 20.
ParaView is a powerful, open-source, turnkey application for analyzing and visualizing data sets in parallel.
ParaView scales from small problem sizes, which can be analyzed on a small laptop computer, up to the largest
computational problems in the world. ParaView is regularly used by Sandia National Laboratories analysts to
visualize massive simulations run on the Red Storm and ASC Purple supercomputers, and by thousands of other
users worldwide. Designed to be configurable, extensible, and scalable, ParaView is built upon the Visualization
Toolkit (VTK) to allow rapid deployment of visualization components.
This tutorial presents the architecture ofParaView and the fundamentals of visualization. Attendees will learn the fundamentals of using ParaView for scientific visualization through hands-on lessons. The tutorial features detailed guidance in visualizing the massive simulations run on today’s supercomputers, and an introduction to extending ParaView with scripting. Attendees should bring laptops to install ParaView and follow along with the demonstrations.
Prerequisites: We have no expectations of the audience although, an understanding of visualization techniques will be helpful. Attendees who have laptop computers, and who install ParaView and follow along with the demonstrations will obtain the greatest benefit from the tutorial.
