Scientific Data Exploration Meets Telecollaboration
Technical report 94/6, Digital Equipment Corporation, Cambridge Research Lab (DEC-CRL), One Kendall Square, Cambridge, MA, June 1994. (Extended version of paper at CVRMed 1995). (bib)

Many scientific and engineering applications use models extracted from and validated by empirical and simulation data. Data extraction, validation, and simulation are rarely performed by an individual, but rather by a group of collaborators. Often these collaborators do not reside at the same location, making collaboration and consultation difficult and costly. Unfortunately, current scientific visualization and data exploration environments do not yet provide telecollaborative facilities. We describe a Telecollaborative Data Exploration system (TDE) which combines sophisticated scientific data exploration tools with telecollaborative capabilities. All exploration tools available to one user are also available to two or more users working on the same problem at other sites. TDE runs in a heterogeneous distributed computing environment, supporting a wide variety of displays around a centralized compute server. It offers the users customizable views of the data. Pointing and cursor linking are based on top of an existing visualizaiton system; hence, users can perform data exploration tasks and share the results with colleagues in one single environment.
