been extended to exploit new Grid technologies. New software (the
library) has been developed to
act as the middleware 'glue'
simulations running on the Grid and a visualization system running on
the desktop. An XML language (skML)
to describe visualization
pipelines has also been developed, together with a proposal for
handling visualization data formats. Demonstrators with
application to environmental science and computational biology were
range of papers, presentations and posters were developed during the
project and these can be downloaded from the publications section of
the Web site.
gViz library provides
connect simulations running on the Grid, with a visualization system
running on the Grid. This allows the remote simulation to be
monitored and steered from the desktop.
library software is available under an Open Source licence. It
was developed within the gViz project and continues to evolve in
