Visualization of Large Data Sets with the Active Data Repository
July/August 2001 (vol. 21 no. 4)
pp. 24-33
The authors present implementations of ray-casting-based volume rendering and isosurface rendering methods using the Active Data Repository (ADR) for visualizing out-of-core datasets, and describe experimental performance results. ADR is an object-oriented framework designed to provide support for applications that analyze, explore, and visualize very large multidimensional data sets. It targets distributed memory parallel machines with one or more disks attached to each node.
