Welcome to VisNow

VisNow is a generic visualization framework in Java technology, developed by Interdisciplinary Centre for Mathematical and Computational Modelling at University of Warsaw.
It is a modular data flow driven platform enabling users to create schemes for data visualization, visual analysis, data processing and simple simulations. Motivated by 'Read and Watch' idea, VisNow shows the data as soon and fast as possible giving further opportunity for processing and more in-depth visualization. In a few steps it can create professional images and movies as well as discover unknown information hidden in datasets.

VisNow, not trying to be yet another visualization tool, is targeted at overcoming the drawbacks of other similar software platforms. It is subject to the following keynotes:

  • Clear and legible desktop
  • Network creation support
  • Multifunctional modules
  • Module-Object-Interface connection

Currently VisNow cooperates with projects:


New VisNow users trained

Friday, 19 December 2014

"Advanced visualization with VIsNow" - a recent hands-on training that took place at ICM on 17-18 December 2014 was a next step towards popularisation of VisNow. The training was given by Visual Analysis Lab team and was addressed to High Performance Computing centre users and scientific communities. VisNow was given a warm welcome and new scinetists are anxious to use its capabilities in their work. We're looking forward to the results.


Updated training materials available

Updated materials from VisNow advanced training are now available for download uder the Creative Commons CC-BY-NC-ND license. Installation guide, user interface training and case study tutorials can be found in the Training section in Documentation page as PDF files and sample datasets.

Publishing VisNow in Singapore

Monday, 20 October 2014

VisNow is spreading around the globe with the recent users training taken in Singapore. A*STAR Computational Resource Center was hosting a full week training entitled "Advanced visualization and programming with VisNow platform". The training was addressed to scientists working around A*STAR and Singapore research institutions. Intense week of both visualization and module programming was a great opportunity to gain a deeper knowledge on our platform.


Going big screen

Friday, 17 October 2014

Within the new cooperation between ICM and A*STAR Computational Research Center in Singapore VisNow was recently implemented on the large scale videowall. Six 4K screens (11 520 x 4 320) powered by three Nvidia Quadro GPUs provide VisNow the possibility to spread the wings. Large scale visualizations and animations are running in this environment based on our platform to give computational scientists the tool for visual analysis of big datasets.

Are you waiting for the new VisNow version? The roadmap for the upcoming releases is here. You might expect the improoved version v1.2 in December 2014. However, the major change will arive  with VisNow v2.0 coming somewhere 2015/16. In the meantime check for updates on our functional libraries JLargeArrays, LargeDatasets and VisNowSwingWidgets.
