Scientific Visualization in Omniverse

NVIDIA Omniverse brings researchers into a shared virtual space so they can view, analyze , discover, and publish their scientific breakthroughs faster through real-time collaboration and simplified workflows.

REVOLUTIONIZING SCIENTIFIC VISUALIZATION

Visualization is the best way to analyze large scientific simulation data. However, the explosion of the size of the simulation results require modern visualization tools that provide high interactivity, photo-realistic visuals, and real-time collaboration with team members.

NVIDIA Omniverse brings team members on the same virtual platform to collaborate in real-time and gather insights faster.

 

OMNIVERSE ACCELERATES SCIENTIFIC DISCOVERIES

Real-time Collaboration

Real-time Collaboration

Omniverse increases productivity by allowing geographically dispersed researchers to visualize, analyze, and modify the same data and collaborate in real-time.

Interactive Visualization at Scale

Interactive Visualization at Scale

Omniverse scales with the data and provides real-time, interactive visualization of large volumetric and 2D data, enabling researchers to quickly and intuitively navigate through the entire data set for faster discoveries.

Photorealistic Visuals

Photorealistic Visuals

Omniverse supports 3D geometries and advanced ray tracing which not only builds photo-realistic visuals but also highlights insights that would be lost in 2D data.

We have had a long collaborative relationship with NVIDIA to help ParaView users get the most insights from their scientific data while simplifying their workflows.

Building the Omniverse-ParaView connector is the step in that direction as users can quickly build files in USD format, which is open source and widely supported. This gives team members the flexibility to visualize their data in their preferred application.

— Utkarsh Ayachit, Kitware

Traditionally, scientists generate visualizations that are useful for data analysis, but are not always aesthetic and straightforward to understand by a broader audience.

To generate a range of visualizations, I use ParaView, Houdini FX, Substance Painter, Photoshop and other applications. Omniverse allows me to use all of these tools, interactively, to create what I call ‘impactful visualizations.

— Brad Carvey, Sandia National Lab

WORKFLOW

TRANSFORMING EVERY STAGE OF SCIENTIFIC VISUALIZATION

Import Assets from Various Sources

Omniverse processes data from scientific simulations, GIS, and USD format, allowing users to bring their data in the same workspace and collaborate in real-time. ParaView users can convert and upload their data on to Omniverse and take advantage of the rich ecosystem of visualization apps.

Real-time Simulation Platform

Omniverse supports real-time physics and AI-based analysis on simulated and live data. This allows users to apply various filters or AI to identify hot spots for faster analysis and discoveries.

Simultaneously Render 2D and 3D Geometries

Scientific data is a combination of 2D attributes like streamlines and 3D volumetric structures. Omniverse allows users to interactively visualize multiple geometries in the same scene so they can see the full picture, intuitively navigate through the data, and gather key insights.

Publish Cinematic Visuals

Outreach is an essential part of scientific publications. With “pro-viz type applications” on the Omniverse platform, researchers can now work with artists in real-time to transform their work into cinematic visuals that are easy for wide audiences to understand.

Visualizing COVID-19 Simulation Using Omniverse

This simulation​ shows the dynamic behavior of COVID’s spike, which exhibits binding sites that can latch onto human cells. Using NVIDIA Omniverse to visualize​ this simulation output demonstrates regions where potential treatments could attack.

Cinematic Climate Visualization with Omniverse

Climate simulations produce large amounts of inherently 3D data, and yet the analysis is often limited to 2D projections. The NVIDIA Omniverse platform enables the fusion of large-scale scientific data with cinematic rendering capabilities, allowing for interactive exploration of complex climate phenomena.
