Overview The TeraScale Browser is an end-user tool that provides interactive navigation through time and space of multi-terabyte datasets with adaptive resolution control. It is the direct result of the research efforts within VIEWS for data access, volume rendering and surface display. It includes a Python based scripting engine for interfacing to external tools. The system runs on Irix and Linux, and requires Motif and OpenGL support.
