I've been following this while trying to find out how my NASA
contractor status might impact how I can contribute to this effort.
However, I'd like to make the point that for a lot of modern
visualization efforts that we do at the SVS for general public
outreach, observations and simulations can be integrated into a single
viz more easily if the tools can play nice together. I have a strong
interest in this area of the development.
Here's some items where I had to integrate very diverse datasets to
generate the final product:
I used numpy, scipy, & pyfits for much of it, but also had to convert
datasets to objects & texture with tools like VTK & PIL.
If there is a way to have the simulation and observation tools playing
nice together, it would simplify outreach (and consequently funding)
