A scalable approach to parallel volume raycasting of structured and unstructured computational grids is presented. The algorithm is general enough to handle non-convex grids and cells, grids with voids, grids constructed from multiple grids, and embedded geometrical primitives. The algorithm is designed for a highly parallel MIMD architecture which features both local memory and shared memory with nonuniform access times. It has been implemented on a BBN TC2000 and benchmarked on several… CONTINUE READING
