Abstract: In situations where the size of a remotely stored dataset hinders its transmission over public networks, it becomes feasible to visualize using hardware resources local to the data rather than the user. A difculty with this approach is that the visualization user often has no control over the software resources available on remote visualization machines. This paper describes a turnkey visualization system that provides a common user interface to a range of visualization applications running as services on remote hardware resources. It describes the motivations for designing such a system, the challenges faced in its construction, and the mechanism by which third party developers can integrate their own visualization applications.
