Visualization

Visualization is a means by which data is translated into images or animations that better represent the phenomena being measured or modeled. It provides a powerful way to interact with and analyze data at any scale, and is particularly crucial for understanding and communicating the results for many high performance computing applications. XSEDE provides visualization services to all users with accounts on XSEDE resources, regardless of scale or complexity. There are a variety of resources and software services provided to the user community for a diverse domain of science and engineering problems.
