Introducing NOODLES: Collaborative Visualization in a Flavorful Package

Research output: NRELPresentation


We introduce NOODLES, a lightweight collaborative visualization and analysis protocol. NOODLES was developed to enable new scientific workflows while enhancing existing pipelines. Using a technology-minimal approach to strengthen applicability, this protocol allows researchers to tie disparate software together as well as making domain specific visualizations accessible across various platforms and form factors. In this talk we discuss background, challenges, and gaps in the current tool landscape that lead to the development of the protocol. We then describe the design of the protocol and present several use cases to demonstrate the efficacy of NOODLES in addressing complex visualization challenges and how it co-exists with existing tools. We conclude by outlining in-progress work and potential avenues for future development within the NOODLES framework.
