15 November 1993 Software framework for an application-driven interactive parallel image processing and display system (PIPADS)

PIPADS is a vertically integrated parallel image processing and display system designed for interactive visualization and processing of large geoscientific data sets arising from remote sensing or computational modelling. Applications include perspective views of digital terrain models and other image surfaces, interactive image warping, volume visualization and seismic data processing. The PIPADS system consists of a layered object oriented software framework resident on a Unix workstation host and a high-performance modular hardware sub-system. The design was driven by the requirements of interactive visualization and image processing using a class of highly parallel and regular image-space algorithms, known as scan-line algorithms. The software control structure allows both asynchronous and synchronous communications from the host application to the compute/display server and allows tuning for minimal latency between the user-interaction and the resulting change in data view.
