Transcript of "VisIVOWeb Theory Group"

  1. 1. VisIVOWeb: a web solution for visualizing cosmological simulations Alessandro Costa INAF Astrophysical Observatory of Catania, Italy Email: alessandro.costa(at)oact.inaf.it
  2. 2. Let’s begin from … ITVO !   ITVO: Italian Theoretical Virtual Observatory !   The ITVO is part of a joint collaboration between Italian Insitute for Astrophysics (INAF) and CINECA supercomputing center !   ITVO has a number of different data centers and services groupped under a single point of access: “Theory” link in http://vobs.astro.it/ Alessandro Costa IVOA Interop. Meeting Nov.2009
  3. 3. Some interesting datasets in ITVO CT !   ITVO CT http://itvo.oact.inaf.it is an online data centerof cosmological simulations. !   The latest dataset in ITVO CT is the whole sequence of outcomes of a 512.000.000 particle simulation performed through a N-body algorithm , for three- dimensional self-gravitating collisionless systems evolution. !   It has been carried out by the cosmology group at INAF CATANIA using the grid of the COMETA Consortium http://www.consorzio-cometa.it/ Alessandro Costa IVOA Interop. Meeting Nov.2009
  4. 4. Data and services in ITVO CT !   Access to the row datasets (512.000.000 Particles -> 12GB ) !   Access to a quick look randomized dataset !   Default: 2.000.000 Particles !   Run time generated by the randomizer service !   Access to a run time generated sub-sample dataset: !   Spherical: run time generated !   Rectangular: run time generated Alessandro Costa IVOA Interop. Meeting Nov.2009
  5. 5. AHF results in ITVO CT Adaptive Mesh Investigations of Galaxy Assembly !   Access AHF results: !   Halos list !   Datasets representing particles contained in subunits- halos !   Datasets representing particles contained in field -halos !   Datasets representing particles contained in void-halos Alessandro Costa IVOA Interop. Meeting Nov.2009
  6. 6. Visualization services in ITVO CT !   Visualization services offered by VisIVOWeb !   Each dataset both existing or run time generated can be loaded seamlessly into one of the VisIVOWeb portals. Alessandro Costa IVOA Interop. Meeting Nov.2009
  7. 7. VisIVO Projects !   VisIVODesktop !   VisIVOServer !   VisIVOWeb
  8. 8. VisIVOWeb http://visivoweb.oact.inaf.it !   VisIVOWeb is part of a joint collaboration between Italian Insitute for Astrophysics (INAF), CINECA supercomputing center and University of Portsmouth !   VisIVOWeb aims at providing our community with multidimensional online Visualization tool. !   VisIVOWeb is a network of portals !   INAF CT Italy !   INAF TS Italy !   University of Portsmouth UK Alessandro Costa IVOA Interop. Meeting Nov.2009
  9. 9. VisIVOWeb !   The primary goal of VisIVOWeb is: to aid the scientist understanding complex data. Outcomes of simulations become larger keeping up with the constant increase of computational power. (i.e. 12GB each time-step -> 512M Body Simulation). !   Images !   Animations Alessandro Costa IVOA Interop. Meeting Nov.2009
  10. 10. VisIVOWeb !   PHP 5 -> Joomla! 1.5 !   Mysql !   VisIVOServer (c++) !   VTK !   Splotch Open Source Projects !   JAVA GPL V2 SourceForge Alessandro Costa IVOA Interop. Meeting Nov.2009
  11. 11. VisIVOWeb: Authentication !   You can connect to VisIVOWeb in two ways: !   Registered user !   Anonymous !   Each user, both the authorized one and the anonymous, has its own staging area and he can upload and manage its own data: images, tables and movies without any interference with other user data. !   Anonymous : 4 day since the last access. At the and of this period all data will be removed from the system. Registered user: 2 months since the last access (some warning e-mails will be sent to the user before the end of the account lifetime) Alessandro Costa IVOA Interop. Meeting Nov.2009
  12. 12. VisIVOWeb Connect This technology allows a web archive to import a data file in a VisIVOWeb Portal. !   The dataset must to be accessible via its URL Alessandro Costa IVOA Interop. Meeting Nov.2009
  13. 13. VisIVOWeb: importing a dataset Alessandro Costa IVOA Interop. Meeting Nov.2009
  14. 14. VisIVOWeb Connect !   The service can be invoked using this syntax: !   http://VisIVOWeb Portal?url=URL&data_file=votable !   Accepted data files: votable, fly, fits, ascii, csv, GADGET2 visivoweb.oact.inaf.it/visivoweb/VisIVOWebConnect.php palantir7.oats.inaf.it/visivoweb/VisIVOWebConnect.php visivo.port.ac.uk/visivoweb/VisIVOWebConnect.php Alessandro Costa IVOA Interop. Meeting Nov.2009

  23. 23. Overview !   Using the spherical sub-volume extraction on ITVO-CT data center we created a new dataset. !   Using VisIVOWeb Connect we imported this dataset into a VisIVOWeb portal. !   Through VisIVOWeb operation (Point Property) we associated a mass density to each particle using a Cloud-In-Cell (CIC) algorithm !   We visualized the dataset using both VTK and Splotch !   We built a movie of the dataset around some chosen frames
