Today's scientific and engineering problems require
a different approach to address the massive data problems in
organization, storage, transmission, visualization, exploration,
and analysis. Visual techniques for data exploration are now
common in many scientific, engineering, and business applications.
However, the massive amount of data collected through simulation,
collection and logging is inhibiting the use of conventional
visualization methods. We need to discover new visualization
methods that allow us to explore the massive multi-dimensional
time-varying information streams and turn overwhelming tasks into
opportunities for discovery and analysis.
