Visualising how the World’s Centre for Supercomputing Shifted over the Last Decade

1. Introduction In an age marked by data-driven knowledge, visualisation plays a major role for exploring and understanding datasets. Visualisations have an amazing ability to condense, analyse, and communicate data as if telling a story with numbers. In contrast to

An Interactive Visualisation to Explore the Top500 List

1. Introduction Among many definitions of visualisation, I prefer when perhaps it was ideally described as the transformation of the symbolic into the geometric (McCormick, 1987). In this sense, visualisation methods are increasingly embraced to explore, communicate, and establish our

The end, or just another beginning?

As summer ends, I can’t help but rememb Jim Morrison (The Doors) singing “this is the end, my only friend, the end…”. This post also represents an end. It is the end of my Summer of HPC project and hence

El Niño around the world

In my last post, I explained what El Niño events were about. In general, El Niño events are part of a bigger oscillation pattern in the climate of Earth called ENSO (El Niño-Southern Oscillation) that changes patterns in temperature and

Shared But Hard to Use: Helping Climate Researchers Share, Discover, and Use Data

1. The Problem Sharing data among researchers is usually an afterthought. In our case, data is already shared publicly on a data repository, which is called DSpace. DSpace serves as an open-access repository for scholarly data published in various scientific
