Visualisation: more insight into your data

Our Visualisation service allows you to visualise your own datasets on your desktop. This makes it easy to identify connections between data or gain other insight into your datasets. SURF offers a powerful remote visualisation service that combines high performance with ease of use.

Software development for 3D visualisation of blood cells

Red and white blood cell visualisation

Together with Electric Ant Lab we developed a software environment for 3D visualisation of suspension simulations, such as red and white blood cells. This framework, that we called susivis, can be used in Jupyter notebooks. Electric Ant Lab is a private research laboratory providing consulting and simulation services in the field of rheology and transport of complex fluids.
