Scalable parallel out-of-core terrain rendering


Goswami, P; Makhinya, M; Bösch, J; Pajarola, R (2010). Scalable parallel out-of-core terrain rendering. In: Eurographics Symposium on Parallel Graphics and Visualization, Norrköping, Sweden, 2 May 2010 - 3 May 2010, 63-71.

Abstract

In this paper, we introduce a novel out-of-core parallel and scalable technique for rendering massive terrain datasets. The parallel rendering task decomposition is implemented on top of an existing terrain renderer using an open source framework for cluster-parallel rendering. Our approach achieves parallel rendering by division of the rendering task either in sort-last (database) or sort-first (screen domain) manner and presents an optimal method for implicit load balancing in the former mode. The efficiency of our approach is validated using massive elevation models.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
