Abstract [en]

This paper describes the master thesis project 3DIS4U: Design and implementation of a distributed visualization system with a stereoscopic display carried out at Uppsala University. The main contributions of the thesis are the installation and evaluation of a wallsized stereoscopic display in a class room-like environment and improvement of the quality, interactivity and usability of visualizations at Uppsala University by connecting the system to one of UPPMAX high-performance computing (HPC) clusters. The project involved modifications to open source softwares, mainly the Visualization ToolKit (VTK) and ParaView. Furthermore, software was developed to aid users in creating interactive stereoscopic simulations. Software was installed and modified for better usability. The option of using HPC resources for larger interactive visualizations also exists. As a final step, evaluations of the display and of the software were carried out together with background research on distributed rendering techniques to be able to produce a proposal for further development of the project. The result of this work is a class room environment which in a few minutes can be turned into a visualization studio with a stereoscopic Linköpings universitetdisplay with the ability to create interactive visualizations. The lecture room retains its function as a class room and can support up to 30 simultaneous viewers.
