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


VisNow was partially supported by "OCEAN - Open Centre for Data Analysis" project, co-funded within the European Regional Development Fund under the Innovative Economy Operational Programme


Visualization in Practice Workshop @ IEEE VIS 2016 conference in Baltimore

Monday, 24 October 2016

VisNow and JSciC are presented in poster session of the "Workshop on Visualization in Practice: Open Source Visualization and Visual Analytics Software" within the IEEE VIS 2016 Conference in Baltimore, US. "A Java alternative to open source visualization - VisNow" and "Java Scientific Containers - an open source generic large data library for visualization applications" give a story on our software and libraries as a potential alternative to other generic visualization platforms and VTK standard.

Scientific visualization tutorial for young scientists

Monday, 19 September 2016

The Academy of Young Scientists of the Polish Academy of Sciences implemented the next "Young Talens Forge" school last weekend. The participants had the oportunity to use VisNow to learn on best practices in scientific visualization on real world case studies. See http://kmtamu.pl/ for more details on the school.

Graphics designers meet scientific visualization

Monday, 25 April 2016

FestDesign16 design&science conference took place at the Academy of Fine Arts in Katowice 22-23 April 2016. The main purpose of the conference was to bring together the scientists and designers to start the discussion on collaboration needs. Visualization is the central point of that discussion. Tutorial on scientific visualization for designers and scientists was based on VisNow software with amazing visual results.


Remote visualization platform with VisNow

Tuesday, 02 February 2016

HPC infrastructure at ICM UW just enriched with integrated remote visualization platform. Dedicated visualization servers are running on Nvidia GRID K2 and M6000 video cards. NICE Desktop Cloud Visualization (DCV) and EngineFrame portal provide the middleware for remote desktop. VisNow provides user friendly visualization on server side with direct acces to HPC filesystems. Running generic large scale visualization on big datasets was never such easy.
