The Visualization Core Lab provides regular training and hands-on workshops during the academic year. Topics include Scientific Visualization, Distributed Data Visualization, In-situ Data Analysis, and Visualization in Virtual Reality Environments. These workshops are open to the entire KAUST academic community.
After training, qualified users are enabled to use the equipment of the Visualization Core Lab with minimal supervision from our staff. Get in touch with us if you require access to any of our facilities or you wish to get appropriate training to use them independently.
The Visualization Core Lab is staffed with scientists with expertise in computer graphics, scientific and information visualization, virtual reality, HPC visualization, and sonification. We provide research and technology support to faculty, post-docs, students, KAUST industry partners, and other members of the university to create and facilitate workflows for interactive visualization and analysis of their research data and to enable them to utilize our facilities for large-scale data visualization.
While we strive to provide training and support so our users can independently utilize our software and facilities, we are available to discuss projects where Core Lab staff will perform the work on your behalf. Get in touch with us if you require this mode of operation for your research, so we can evaluate your requirements against our capacity and workload.
Our staff provides technical know-how and software architecture expertise for various visualization and data analysis applications and software development kits. We work with commercial packages such as AVIZO Ⓡ, OpenInventor Ⓡ, and Unity3D Ⓡ, as well as open-source packages such as VTK, PARAVIEW, and DisplayCluster. With a collective background spanning programming languages such as Python, C/C++, Perl, and C#, our staff has you covered. We also help with setting up custom data visualization workflows with setting up automated builds, continuous integration, package dependency management, using software and industry best practices.
