Gruchalla and Marbach Place in IEEE Visualization 2004 Contest


October 2004


Graduate students Kenny Gruchalla and Jonathan Marbach took second place in the IEEE Visualization 2004 Contest for their immersive visualization prototype, AtmosV.

IEEE Visualization is the premier scientific visualization conference. This year a contest was held as a forum to compare and benchmark different visualization techniques. The contest task was to develop a visualization that allowed the interactive exploration of multiple characteristics of a hurricane simulation data set provided by the National Center for Atmospheric Research. The data consisted of over 50 gigabytes of time-varying scalar and vector variables.

Kenny and Jon developed an immersive application capable of interactively visualizing multiple characteristics of this data set. They approached the problem through a combination of volume and polygonal rendering. The immersive application was developed and evaluated on both a shared-memory parallel machine and a commodity cluster. This work was done at the BP Center for Visualization.
