Some thoughts on what we (from NCSA's Virtual Director and NLANR/DAST groups) hope to do re network visualization.

3-D interactive graphics

We do 3-D interactive graphics, and we believe that some relevant visual metaphors work well in 3-D, so our tools will have a 3-D component.

Thinking of vBNS (and likely I2) backbone and institutional data

what data?

superpose general network view with single-app perf measures

show comparison with normal behavior, as well as absolute measures

issues

virtual reality
