The Center for Promotion of Computational Science and Engineering has developed a detailed design and prototype of the Information Technology Based Laboratory (ITBL). A software group forms the basic ITBL framework and makes up this infrastructure. The infrastructure gives registered users access to any supercomputer within the ITBL for the purpose of numerical simulations and supplies them with tools for discussion sessions among ITBL user groups or communities. When a result is speculated, it's important for every member of the community to see, at the same time, images of the simulation results. To achieve this, we developed visualization systems on the ITBL infrastructure software equipped with efficient remote visualization and collaborative visualization functions. We based the two core visualization systems-the parallel tracking steering (Patras)/ITBL and the application visualization system (AVS)/ITBL-on the existing visualization tools Patras and AVS/Express.
