Paper Abstract

At the IST and SPIE 96 conference, the author reported a successful cooperative visualization case study that involved using an internet web-browser for data dissemination and data visualization applications between the US and Japanese offices. This cooperative visualization effort using computers and the web-browser has been evaluated, and it has pointed the way to the current research involving the use of the World Wide Web environment for real-time simulation and interactive visualization. Since the spring of 1996, the author has been using Fujitsu's new multi-processor supercomputer VPP300 for fast numerical model simulations and data generations. Meanwhile, the web technology has been advancing very quickly, and it now provides many tools and methods for the scientific visualization. In the summer of 1996, the author began to work on a prototype for a real-time supercomputing interactive visualization system based on the available World Wide Web browser tools and a Fujitsu visualization software known as VisLink. The intranet version of this system was completed in December of 1997. Design issues and a case study of the prototype will be discussed in this paper.
