Scientific Visualization

Visualization is an important tool for analyzing and understanding data. The visualization group at JSC assists users by developing and adapting software tools to meet special needs.


Virtual Reality

In many scientific areas a huge amount of data is generated, e.g. by complex simulations, performed on supercomputers, or by high resolution measurement instruments used in experimental studies.
Whenever the amount of data is very high or the data has a complex 3D-structure, it is of advantage to use special high-end 3D visualisation systems, so called virtual reality (vr) systems. These projection based visualisation systems provide sterescopic image generation and, by means of so called tracking devices, real 3D user interaction. More: Virtual Reality …

Jupyter at JSC

Interactive Supercomputing

Interactive exploration and analysis of large amounts of data from scientific simulations, in-situ visualization and application control are convincing scenarios for explorative sciences. Based on the open source software Jupyter or JupyterLab, a way has been available for some time now that combines interactive with reproducible computing while at the same time meeting the challenges of support for the wide range of different software workflows. On supercomputers, the method enables the creation of documents that combine live code with narrative text, mathematical equations, visualizations, interactive controls, and other extensive.
