Part of the Smart Innovation, Systems and Technologies book series (SIST, volume 11)


The science gateway is important component of many large-scale Earth, astronomical, environmental and natural disasters science projects. Developing the sciences portals and the science gateways is coverage of requirements of large scale sciences such as Earth science, astronomy and all sciences which are using grid, cloud or cluster computing and high-performance computing infrastructure. The paper shows the main position of visualization in Science Gateway and describes architecture of the Visualization Tool (VT), for Earth and astrophysics simulations and shows some examples. VT is integrated in the web portal, as is e-science gateway for astronomy and astrophysics.
