VACCINE Partners receive a $7 Million Grant
October 8, 2009
VACCINE’s Purdue University and University of Texas at Austin were recently awarded a $7 million NSF Extreme Scale Data Visualization grant. Kelly Gaither at Texas is the PI and David Ebert at Purdue is a CO-PI on the grant entitled, "Enabling Transformational Science and Engineering Through Integrated Collaborative Visualization and Data Analysis for the National User Community".
Purdue will design and develop visualization and analysis tools for integration into the TACC deployed tools for the national user community, focusing on advanced volume visualization tools, correlative analysis tools, visual analytic tools, and atmospheric and flow visualization tools. These tools will have wide applicability to applications including drought and flood analysis, climate models, medicine, public health, and engineering. Purdue will expand their research suite of integrated visualization and analytics tools created in the Department of Homeland Security’s Command Control and Interoperability Center of Excellence to massive (exascale) data and to applications for the national science, engineering, and health research communities.

Purdue graduate students contributed to the development of a program to advance recovery from a hurricane. Researchers at Purdue with Visual Analytics for Command, Control and Interoperability Environments (VACCINE), part of the Purdue Research Park, developed a system to increase efficiency in United States Coast Guard operations called Coast Guard Search and Rescue Visual Analytics, also known as cgSARVA. David Ebert, director of VACCINE, said the system allows the United States Coast Guard to be more aware of their resources.Read Full Story
