Noodles: Cooking Up Collaborative Visualization

Research output: NRELPresentation


NOODLES is a new cross-domain collaborative visualization and analysis capability being developed at NREL. The NOODLES specification is a minimal protocol that can tie different software packages and platforms together. As an example, a simulation code that speaks this protocol could stream iso-surfaces to an immersive VR space and a web browser. Another example is a team (with some members across the country) classifying and discovering features in a statistical data plot, driven from a researcher's existing Python-based workflow. In this talk, we will discuss some background on the problems that this protocol intends to solve, basic principles of the specification, the current state of supporting libraries, and some demonstrations of the protocol in action.
