GeodiseLab: making the grid usable

By Graeme Pound, Jasmin Wason, Marc Molinari, Zhuoan Jiao and Simon Cox


The GeodiseLab project is supported by the OMII managed programme to extend and improve the Geodise toolboxes which provide Grid client functionality to Problem Solving Environments (PSEs) used by engineers and scientists. The three key areas of development in the Geodise toolboxes have been: extending the functionality of the toolboxes, supporting additional environments, and hardening the toolboxes for public release. The Geodise computational toolboxes now support additional Grid technologies, including Condor and the OMII_1 platform. Recent enhancements to the Geodise Database and XML Toolbox are described. The Jython scripting environment is now supported in addition to the Matlab technical computing environment. We also discuss the software engineering process used to harden the toolboxes for public release, and the usability issues highlighted by feedback from users. Finally, a new application of the Geodise toolboxes in the domain of Electric Impedance Tomography is presented
