Abstract: As data continue to grow beyond enormous sizes, visualization in three dimensions becomes the preferred way to analyze and solve complex problems. When visualization techniques are combined with technology that allows for global collaboration and sharing of high-resolution images, the Department of Defense has a tool for making faster and better decisions. Government and academic researchers engaged in analysis and simulation can access high-performance computing remotely from their desktops, improving both resource utilization and productivity. The need for networked visualization is strongly driven by those agencies and organizations where the cost or impact of decision making is very high. Such decision making revolves around large datasets, sophisticated modeling, and is based on complex data sharing and collaboration between remote heterogeneous teams. Clearly, organizations facing the need to analyze complex data sets will realize great benefits by creating networked visualization solutions.
