Massive multi-type 3D datasets in parallel Environments.
Parallel3D is a KMB-project (“Kunnskapsprosjekt med Brukermedvirkning” –“Competence project with user participation”) granted by the VERDIKT-program of The Research Council of Norway.
Project idea: To exploit the parallelism now being introduced in commodity hardware to drastically improve access to, interaction with, and processing and presentation of massive static and time-varying 3D rich contents.
The focus in Parallel3D will be on natural and human made objects and structures, medical data, industrial and scientific simulation results, and combinations thereof:
Project results are planned to be dissiminated as Open Source.
Partners: Together with SINTEF ICT, Department of Applied Mathematics, Kongsberg SIM (earlier Systems in Motion) is a industrial partner on the project, and Centre of Mathematics for Applications is a academic partner.
Funding: The project is KMB-project funded 80% by The Research Council of Norway under contract number 180023/S10, and 20% by Kongsberg SIM. The duration of the project is 2007--2010.
