José Díaz: Interactive visualization of massive static and dynamic volumetric datasets

Abstract

The exploration of volumetric data is crucial to understand many phenomena in a wide range of scientific and technological fields.

Due to the ever-increasing size of such datasets, scalable and output-sensitive solutions are needed to provide interactive visualizations on commodity platforms. Up to now, compressed GPU-based volume rendering has shown its effectiveness to overcome bandwith and memory limitations. However, datasets at the giga and tera-scale still represent a challenge for the current compression-based rendering approaches in terms of scalability, compression quality and performance.

In this talk I will present the COVRA volume rendering architecture, that allows an interactive exploration of massive static and dynamic volumetric datasets on desktop PCs, including a tera- scale turbulence simulation with a spatio-temporal resolution of 10244.

Dr Jose Díaz is currently working as a senior researcher at the Center for Advanced Studies, Research and Development – CRS4, Sardinia (Italy). Before he had completed his education and  Universitat Politcnica de Catalunya (UPC), Barcelona (Spain) and made the first move to become an experienced researcher. His phd thesis was about the perception of volumentric data .
