Although the grid allows the researcher to tap a vast amount of resources, the complexity involved in utilizing this power can make it unwieldy and time-consuming. The Grid Interface for Parameter Sweeps and Exploration (GIPSE) 1 toolset aims to solve this issue by freeing users from script debugging, storage issues, and other minutiae involved in managing simulations on the grid. GIPSE, which interacts seamlessly with existing grid software, abstracts interactions with the grid to present a research-centric view of the process rather than the typical task-centric view. GIPSE offers an alternative interface to the grid that removes the need for application specific wrappers around parameter-driven simulations and provides an interface to build data sets for visualization. In this paper, we discuss how GIPSE bridges a critical gap between existing tools and management of the overarching data result.
