GriKSL (April 2002-March 2004)
The German GriKSL project developed Grid-based simulation and visualization techniques for the Cactus framework.
Two virtual file drivers were added to the HDF5 library to provide transparent access to (a) live simulation data streamed via TCP socket connections, and (b) to file-based data located on remote GridFTP servers.
Visualization programs such as the OpenDX toolkit could make use of these drivers in order to provide remote online/offline visualizations of Cactus data.
API for fast querying in HDF5. A prototype for storing bitmap and projection indices in HDF5.
The HDF5 Web Service (H5WS) is an API for working with remote data. It partially mirrors the high level HDF5 Lite API, but allows users to query and work with remote data. It is implemented using the client-server infrastructure provided by Globus, gridFTP and HDF5.
The HDF5 Mesh prototype is a higher-level API for storing and retrieving structured and unstructured "mesh" data typical of applications such as computational fluid dynamics, finite element analysis, and visualization.
This project was an effort to establish a standard way to store simple mesh data. It was done in collaboration with and implemented by CEI, based on CEI's API for reading and writing mesh data in its EnSight Visualization software.
HL-HDF, from the Swedish Meteorological and Hydrological Institute, is a high level interface to the Heirarchical Data Format, version 5, developed and maintained by the HDF group at the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA), at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. HDF5 is a file format designed for maximum flexibility and efficiency and it makes use of modern software technology.
