Processing and visualization of mantle convection data with Paraview and VTK

Moder, Christoph, Jens Oeser, Marcus Mohr, and Bernhard Schuberth (2008), Processing and visualization of mantle convection data with Paraview and VTK, in EGU General Assembly 2008, invited talk.

Abstract
Visualisation techniques are an effective means to reduce large and complex datasets
in such a way that they can be understood more easily. Here we present new results
on the visualisation of mantle convection simulations, which produce large volumetric
datasets. A major challenge is the rendering of cross sections and isosurfaces from
models with over 10 million grid points, which is difficult to accomplish on standard
PCs. We succeed in processing our data with the open-source software packages Paraview
and VTK; these packages accommodate a wide range of architectures, and can
be used in different setups. For interactive processing, we run Paraview on a largescale
cluster, where the data is distributed over the cluster nodes and displayed either
on a normal PC, or on a Geowall. Geowall rendering places high demands on the
rendering hardware, since the rendering effort is doubled. For non-interactive display
modes, when the processing parameters are known in advance, the processing can
also be done on a single PC. This is accomplished through the use of scripts in different
high-level languages. They are also applied for the preprocessing steps to convert
ASCII data files from various sources and formats; we will present results on how to
group this repetitive tasks into an efficient and flexible toolchain.
