Issue No.04 - July/August (2001 vol.21)
pp: 24-33
ABSTRACT
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.
