Visualisation of Big Imaging Data: Radio Astronomy Case SKA will produce multidimensional images of Universe of unprecedented detail and sizes. This presents a new challenge for extracting the knowledge from the data, as well as ensuring the quality of data. Remote visualisation with adaptive fidelity could aid the data exploration and quality control. We will briefly review the current state of visualisation in astronomy, and then present SkuareView remove visualisation software developed at ICRAR, and deployed on AWS and Pawsey…

Data Centric Processing Software Practices for the SKA and Beyond – Perth Big Data Week

May 6, 2016 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
The Ken and Julie Michael Building, 7 Fairway,
Crawley, Western Australia 6009 Australia

Data Centric Processing Software Practices for the SKA and Beyond The SKA is pushing the boundaries of data management and processing, not just in sheer volume or FLOPs required, but even more so in terms of affordability. The challenge is to squeeze as much science out of the data as possible, given the limited capital and operational budget. Essentially the science capabilities of the SKA will be compute budget bound. Given this constraint we are employing the latest technologies and…
