[4.11] Beowulf Analysis Symbolic INterface (BASIN)

We are developing an integrated suite of parallelized analysis and visualization tools, designed to run on large Beowulf-class clusters of computers. Using efficient and scalable algorithms, this toolkit will harness the low-cost computing power of these parallel systems to allow real time analysis and visualization of data sets in the multi-terabyte to petabyte range. Software components for data input/output, transformations, statistical analysis, and 3D visualization will communicate and operate seamlessly within a symbolic user interface.

Funding for this project has been provided by the National Science Foundation Information Research Technology (ITR) program.
