The remote visualization systems provide access to visualization software, such as uv-cdat, without requiring running X-Windows through ssh. The systems have powerful graphics cards and allow the user to render the image close to the data and send only the rendered image back to the user's desktop, eliminating the need to download large data files and reducing the time to display the visualizations.
