Introduction to ParaView Catalyst

In my previous article you can find a brief introduction to the In Situ Visualization Technique which allows to explore simulation data during the run-time without involving storage resources of a supercomputer. Now it’s time to go a little bit further

Dare to visualize – Tornado effect

Sometimes in life we have to accept dares, challenges or we even have to make self commitments to achieve success. By the way, this is human nature, after reaching one milestone we look to the next, and according to me:

Has the rain stopped yet?

Indeed, as the summer comes to an end I realize I had a lot of rain – both here in Scotland and on my computer screen. My project was to develop a weather visualisation application which will be used at

What’s in a virtual screening dataset?

In my previous blogpost, I explained the main objectives of my project. During these weeks, I have focused towards the data analysis side of HPC rather than working on optimizing a program that runs on a super computer. I have been working to

Bringing visualisation to the web with Python and Bokeh

These days the world seems to run on data; from Google, to the NSA/GCHQ, to CERN, everyone seems to want more data, and be willing to go to great lengths to get it. However, once we have all of this

Finding the fireball

A legend says that there was once a warm sunny day in Scotland. I have started my quest to find out if the myth was true, but I was not the only one. A group of scientists from the UK

In Situ Visualization Technique

Traditionally, the process of performing numerical simulations consists of three separate steps: First, the input parameters (such as initial or boundary conditions) are specified, then the simulation is executed and finally, in order to determine the result, it is necessary

First steps to CINECA – Solving the mystery of ParaView Catalyst

It was a wonderful experience in  SoHPC 2016 first week training in Fz-Juelich super computing center where I attended lectures on MPI, OpenMP, CUDA, and ParaView visualizations. And I added some new friends in my life. It was really interesting

The (short) story of a month at SoHPC

As you already know by reading the other SoHPCers posts, this adventure starts in Barcelona, more precisely on the beach, where we all took lessons on MPI, OpenMP, performance measurement tools, visualisation tools, etc. You might have also read all

Answers: Let the Blood Flow!

Here are the answers to last week’s quiz. I hope you liked it – even though I must admit that some answers were quite hard to find. As you see, the highest speed was reached at position (c), in the

As I have already mentioned in earlier posts, my project is Timeline Profiling and Visualisation with Python; so I am actually using too much Python. But why should someone else bother learning Python? Well,there are several reasons! First of all,

The power of Big-Data

Do we really care about the cause ? Big-Data are well into our everyday lives. They change the way we think, act and perceive the world. In the past, humans were trying to explain phenomena by struggling to find causality

Patching things up

While most Summer of HPC projects involve creating mind-blowing visualisations, the main aim of mine is to edit visualisation software source code. Rather than producing a single impressive visualisation, the outcome will result in easing the process of visualisation for

If you can visualize the shape, you can understand the system

James Clerk Maxwell (1831-1879) was a Scottish theoretical physicist. His most prominent achievement was the formulation of a set of equations over which we walked in the hallway of James Clerk Maxwell building at EPCC supercomputing centre (University of Edinburgh). His
