Visualization is an important tool for gaining insight in scientific datasets. In some cases, full numerical analysis of results is not feasible or not wanted. Visualization can usually provide ways to get a first overview of results, to look for interesting phenomena in the data, to check correctness of results and, most importantly, to communicate scientific results.
The SURFsara Visualization group works on all manner of scientific visualization tasks. We perform not just the classical mapping of data to meaningful pictures or movies, but also more exotic visualization tasks, such as creation of visualization tools with Google Maps and Google Earth, providing service for parallel remote visualization and development multitouch interactive visualization applications.
We house an advanced visualization and presentation room, called the "Collaboratorium", enabling high-resolution visualization on a 16 megapixel video wall, while providing multi-touch interaction, video-conferencing and 3D stereo projection.
From the Collaboratorium data in the SURFsara data center can be accessed using a high-speed optical connection, or it can be streamed from our Remote Visualization Cluster.
