As part of the Computational Physics Department, KIPAC's visualization and data analysis facilities provide hardware and software solutions that help users at KIPAC and SLAC to analyze their large-scale scientific data sets. Examples include interactive real-time 3D visualization methods for state-of-the-art numerical computational fluid dynamics and N-body simulations and tiled-display systems for high-resolution astrophysical image data. With its stereoscopic 3D presentations, KIPAC is also actively contributing to the public outreach program at Stanford and SLAC.
