Title: Visualization and Data Analysis at the Exascale

Abstract

The scope of our working group is scientific visualization and data analysis. Scientific visualization refers to the process of transforming scientific simulation and experimental data into images to facilitate visual understanding. Data analysis refers to the process of transforming data into an information-rich form via mathematical or computational algorithms to promote better understanding. We share scope on data management with the Storage group. Data management refers to the process of tracking, organizing and enhancing the use of scientific data. The purpose of our work is to enable scientific discovery and understanding. Visualization and data analysis has a broad scope as an integral part of scientific simulations and experiments, it is also a distinct separate service for scientific discovery and documentation purposes. Our scope includes an exascale software and hardware infrastructure that effectively supports visualization and data analysis.
