Embracing new solutions for in-situ visualisation
This PPT was used by Jean Favre, senior visualisation software engineer at CSCS, the Swiss National Supercomputing Centre during his presentation at P'Con '21 (Pawsey's first PaCER Conference).
This material discusses the upcoming release of ParaView v5.10, a leading scientific visualisation application. In this release ParaView consolidates its implementation of the Catalyst API, a specification developed for simulations and scientific data producers to analyse and visualise data in situ.
The material reviews some of the terminology and issues of different in-situ visualisation scenarios, then reviews early Data Adaptors for tight-coupling of simulations and visualisation solutions. This is followed by an introduction of Conduit, an intuitive model for describing hierarchical scientific data. Both ParaView-Catalyst and Ascent use Conduit’s Mesh Blueprint, a set of conventions to describe computational simulation meshes.
Finally, the materials present CSCS’ early experience in adopting ParaView-Catalyst and Ascent via two concrete examples of instrumentation of some proxy numerical applications.
