Abstract

Traditional visualization approaches cannot handle new challenges in the visualization field such as visualizing huge data sets, communicating between existing visualization systems and providing interactive visualization services, widely. In this chapter, the authors introduce an emerging research direction in the visualization field, grid-based visualization, which aims to resolves the above problems by utilizing grid computing technology. However, current grid computing technology is almost batch job-oriented and does not support interactive visualization applications natively. In this chapter, the authors implement a grid-based visualization system (GVis) which utilizes large-scale computing resources to achieve large dataset visualization in real time and provides end users with reliable interactive visualization services, widely. In GVis system, current grid computing technology is extended to support interactive visualization applications.
