Scientific Visualization at Mines

Road Map

  1. Develop software packages on HPC platforms for visualization: Test and create tutorials for user access
    1. Ansys remote visualization client
    2. Paraview remote server
    3. Blender HPC rendering (In Progress)
    4. Juypter notebook server (available in both command line startup and now at
    5. Jupyter notebook workflow with Paraview
  2. Apply for cyberinfrastructure grant for new equipment for campus support of visualization needs:
    Seeking assistants with NSF CC* grant Science Drivers from current and potential campus users
  3. Build user community and knowledge base at Mines: Connect researchers to talent and equipment across Mines campus
