Abstract State-of-the-art computational science simulations generate large-scale vector field datasets. Visualization and analysis are key aspects of obtaining insight into these datasets and represent an important challenge. This article discusses possibilities and challenges of modern vector field visualization and focuses on methods and techniques developed in the SciDAC Visualization and Analytics Center for Enabling Technologies (VACET) and deployed in the open-source VisIt tool.
