Dynamic 3D network visualization:
Both 3DScape and 3DScapeCS are developed for 3D network visualization. 3DScape use a renderer implemented using VTK. 3DScape is capable of displaying 3D networks in Windows and Linux. However, 3DScape freezes in Mac OSX, due to the Java wrapping for VTK is expected to be launched from the main thread in Swing, which is also required for Cytoscape GUI. Therefore, we designed 3DScapeCS to use a standalone renderer called Ubigraph. Moreover the multilevel layout, dynamic coarsening and XMLRPC protocol are more suitable for parallel visualization of large networks.
