An initial overview of parallel visualization in the GeoFEM software system is provided. Our visualization subsystem offers many kinds of parallel visualization methods for the users to visualize their huge finite-element analysis datasets for scalar, vector and/or tensor fields at a reasonable cost. A polygonal simplification scheme is developed to make the transmission and rendition of output graphic primitives more efficient. A salient feature of the subsystem lies in its capability in the automatic setting of visualization parameter values based on the analysis of scalar/flow field topology and volumetric coherence, to improve the quality of visualization results with a minimized number of batch re-executions. Representative experimental results illustrate the effectiveness of our subsystem.
