Abstract

Now you see it - interactive visualisation of large datasets J. Walton ABSTRACT We briefly review existing techniques for the visualisation of numerical data, before describing those methods which appear to be most promising in the search for a modern solution to the problem of interpreting large, multidimensional datasets. There is a requirement for data display methods which are powerful, and yet easy to invoke, modify and extend. We discuss some products which are currently available in this field for the engineer, and illustrate their use with a number of examples, drawn from some recent work performed at NAG. INTRODUCTION AND BACKGROUND The continuing rapid evolution of computer technology is leading to large increases in the power of computer processors coupled with a steady fall in their cost. This in turn means that engineers will be able to work with larger and larger amounts of data, and study bigger problems on their supercomputers. Ho
