Visualization services overview

Visualization services at WestGridScientific visualization tools allow you to convert the results of your numerical simulations or your experimental data into engaging images or movies to share with colleagues, display online, or include in a publication.

WestGrid's Visualization Coordinator, Alex Razoumov, leads the Compute Canada Visualization National Team and works closely with researchers across Western Canada to incorporate visualization approaches into their research projects. Our team of visualization experts has extensive experience in scientific visualization and visual data analysis, primarily using open-source tools such as ParaView, VisIt, VTK, Blender, VMD, and various Python libraries to work with a wide variety of data types.

We can help you with all stages of visualization, from preparing data in the right format to interactive analysis. For more information, contact Alex -
