with Mars topography using iView3D and Chromium on the high
Exploration of Heterogeneous Geological Datasets
use the ‘Fledermaus’ (http://www.ivs.unb.ca/products/fledermaus/)
software developed by Interactive Visualization Systems (IVS http://www.ivs.unb.ca/)
to create 3D interactive visualizations that combine various geo-referenced
datasets such as topography, bathmetry, seismic reflections, seismic
catalogs, photographs, coastlines etc. These datasets can be explored
using the free viewer program ‘iView3D’ (http://www.ivs.unb.ca/products/iview3d/)
also developed by IVS. IView3D can be used on the stereo Geowall
1 system and also on the tiled Geowall 2 system. On the high resolution
tiled Geowall 2 systems i.e. the two IBM T221 displays, we use the
Chromium software to display pixels. Chromium (http://chromium.sourceforge.net/)
is a system for interactive rendering on clusters of graphics workstations.
may be downloaded for free from the SIO VizCenter library (http://siovizcenter.ucsd.edu/library/objects/index.php).
