Kitware, along with Sandia National Laboratories, will be presenting a tutorial on Large-Scale Visualization with ParaView at this year’s SciDAC conference.
ParaView is a powerful open-source turnkey application for analyzing and visualizing large data sets in parallel. Designed to be configurable, extendible, and scalable, ParaView is built upon the Visualization Toolkit (VTK) to allow rapid deployment of visualization components. This tutorial presents the architecture of ParaView and the fundamentals of parallel visualization. Attendees will learn the basics of using ParaView for scientific visualization with hands-on lessons. The tutorial features detailed guidance in visualizing the massive simulations run on today’s supercomputers and an introduction to scripting and extending ParaView. Attendees should bring laptops to install ParaView and follow along with the demonstrations.
