Vis. techniques for EB data - basic and research
What follows is just "chicken scratchings" for the
LDRD Final Report.
Conceptually straightforward techniques/extensions
Note: Although these are conceptually straightforward extensions,
a considerable amount of work is necessary to implement any of them in
existing vis. packages because none provide even basic support (e.g. data
structures) for this.
Flatten data and treat embedded boundaries (EB) separately
Independent collections of data on grids and treat EB separately (render
Cut and paste and render (replace vis. of coarse data with vis. of finer
data where possible and show the result, seams and all) and treat EB separately
EB/vof's treated and visualized as 1st class citizens in AMR data rather
than extracting them as geometry and visualizing them separately (ANAG
needs storage capabilities for EB inside AMRv)
Visualization of result in the continuous problem domain rather than in
the discrete computation domain - collaborative effort required
Data selection and interrogation referenced all the way back through visualization
tools to Boxlib (lacking in basic infrastructure)
Leverage off NCSA work.
