VisIT Performance Enhancements

Purpose

VisIt is a free interactive parallel visualization and graphical analysis tool for viewing scientific data on Unix and PC platforms. This project investigates expanding VisIt algorithms to accelerators, such as GPUs, using OpenCL. By moving computation to accelerators, we expect to improve visualization performance and possibly rendering performance if the entire visualization pipeline can be moved to the accelerator.
