NERSCPowering Scientific Discovery Since 1974

Data, Visualization, and Analytics


ParaView is an open-source, multi-platform data analysis and visualization application. Data exploration can be done interactively in 3D or using batch processing. It was developed to analyze extremely large datasets using distributed memory computing resources and run on supercomputers well as on laptops. Read More »

VisIt - 3D Scientific Visualization

VisIt is a point-and-click 3D scientific visualization application that supports most common visualization techniques (e.g., isocontouring and volume rendering) on structured and unstructured grids. Due to its distributed and parallel architecture, VisIt is able to handle very large datasets interactively. In addition, VisIt is extensible, allowing users to add data loaders or additional analysis tools to VisIt. The NERSC Analytics Group has developed extensions to VisIt to support NERSC user applications, and coordinates with the VisIt development team to add these extensions to the main VisIt development code branch.
