Graphics and Visualization

Alliance users also have access to unclassified visualization (vis) clusters. A variety of graphics software is installed on these and other LC compute clusters, and is supported by the Information Management and Graphics (IMG) group. The software can be divided into three general classes: visualization tools, graphics libraries, and utilities for plotting and conversion of data.
