Yellowstone users who need help visualizing data to demonstrate the results of their scientific computing can request expert assistance and collaboration from CISL. This service is available to researchers who want help using specialized visualization applications on the Geyser or Caldera clusters within the Yellowstone environment.
CISL staff experts have particular expertise in CISL-developed software such as VAPOR and NCL but are open to assisting with other applications. They have helped science teams produce visualizations featured in such venues as the SC13 visualization showcase, American Geophysical Union and American Meteorological Society events, the SIGGRAPH Electronic Theatre, and many others. Visualizations created with CISL software have appeared on the cover of Nature and numerous other journals.
To request assistance, use this Special Request Form. Indicate clearly that the request is for "Advanced Visualization Support" and describe how the proposed visualization project meets the following criteria.
Requests for advanced visualization support are evaluated based on those criteria to ensure the most productive use of the limited available staff time. To further help us evaluate your request, please briefly address the following questions when submitting the Special Request form.
The CISL visualization staff will follow up with requesters directly if additional details are needed.
These visualizations were created using VAPOR software.
CISL visualization experts can help as described above with using applications such as NCL and VAPOR on the Yellowstone system. To learn how to submit the necessary jobs and start the applications, see the following documentation pages.
