VisIt Presented to Fusion Researchers at PPPL
VACET members presented an all day class on VisIt, VACET's powerful data analysis and visualization toolset for scientific data, to researchers at the Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL) on Sept 8, 2008. Sean Ahern of ORNL taught the all-day session for PPPL researchers who are involved in a number of SciDAC projects and have significant need for production-quality visualization and analysis tools. Recognizing the power of the VisIt visualization system, many researchers expressed an interest in moving their work over to the new platform. Spurred by the focus on visualization and analysis, PPPL researchers and VACET members also discussed a number of potential future collaborative projects, including workflow automation and comparative analysis. We look forward to future involvement with the cutting edge Plasma Physics team at Princeton.
