Datoviz: ultra-fast GPU scientific visualization with Vulkan


I'm excited to present the project I've been working on at the International Brain Laboratory (IBL). Datoviz is an early-stage open-source high-performance GPU scientific visualization library based on Vulkan, the Khronos cross-platform low-level graphics API, which is 5 years old today!

A compiler infrastructure for data visualization


There are many data visualization tools out there. Yet, I believe we're still lacking a robust, scalable, and cross-platform visualization toolkit that can handle today's massive datasets.

Most existing tools target simple plots with a few hundreds or thousands of points: bar plots, scatter plots, histograms and the like. Typically …

Big Data visualization with WebGL, part 2: VisPy


In this post series, I'm describing the big data visualization platform I'm currently developing with WebGL. I'll detail in this second post the VisPy library which is the basis of the project.

Birth of the project

I started to be interested in high-performance data …

Back from our first Vispy code camp at ESRF


We had our first official Vispy Code Camp this week. I and the other core developers of Vispy were kindly invited by the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility. We presented our young library to software engineers from the ESRF and other European synchrotron facilities. It was also the occasion for us …
