Advanced Data Analysis and Visualization Workshops

Advanced Data Analysis and Visualization Workshops

Got Data? Need to Visualize it?

Join us for a free one day training workshop offered by SURA in collaboration with the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC). The agenda will include an overview of resources at TACC, an introduction to Longhorn, and how to remotely access Longhorn. Hands on exercises will provide participants the opportunity to use ParaView, EnVision, and VisIt to visualize data sets. Participants will receive temporary training accounts for the purpose of participating in the workshop’s hands-on labs. This workshop is open to faculty and students with research that has visualization requirements.

Longhorn, an NSF-funded resource, is available to academic researchers nationwide through TeraGrid. A DELL/NVIDIA Visualization & Data Analysis Cluster, Longhorn is a hybrid CPU/GPU system designed for remote, interactive visualization and data analysis.  In addition, Longhorn supports production, compute-intensive calculations on both the CPUs and GPUs.  The large, per-node memory is intended to support serial and parallel visualization and analysis applications that take advantage of large memories, multiple computing cores, and multiple graphics processors.
