Abstract:
Modeling and visualization of virtual geographical space involves high power computation resources and massive data models. The solution of combining graphics cluster based computation, Grid infrastructure and Web applications is the main concern of the research reported by this paper. The paper explores and experiments the optimal architecture for remote graphics visualisation considering different combinations of the sort-first and sort-last distributed rendering algorithms over the Equalizer graphics cluster. The research concerns with scalability related with single and multiuser interaction against single and multi virtual geographical models. The paper explores as well solutions for unit frame encoding, data streaming, and user interaction techniques.
