RAVE: The Resource-Aware Visualization Environment

Grimstead, Ian, Avis, Nicholas and Walker, David William 2009. RAVE: The Resource-Aware Visualization Environment. Concurrency and Computation: Practice and Experience 21 (4) , pp. 415-448. 10.1002/cpe.1327

We present the Resource-Aware Visualization Environment (RAVE) project, from its inception and design phases, through implementation choices and final actual use cases. The RAVE (Resource-Aware Visualization Environment)is a distributed, collaborative Grid enabled visualization environment that supports automated resource discovery across heterogeneous machines. RAVE runs as a background process using Web services, enabling us to share resources with other users rather than commandeering an entire machine. RAVE supports a wide range of machines, from hand-held PDAs to high-end servers with large-scale stereo, tracked displays. The local display device may render all, some or none of the data set remotely, depending on its capability and present loading, utilising remote servers to assist where necessary. This enables scientists and engineers to collaborate from their desks, in the field, or in front of specialised immersive displays.
