Abstract: As huge amounts of flow data come into being every day, it is challengeable for most flow field visualisation applications on a single PC to handle the large-scale data, because of the memory size restriction. To address the problem, out-of-core strategy with data prefetching is frequently applied to load the data on demand and fill in the speed gap between I/O and computation. In this paper, we focus on improving the efficiency of data-prefetching large-scale streamline visualisation by elevating the hit rate of data block prediction. Our key idea is to extract feature information of the field and then adopt a partitioning strategy that slices important regions into smaller blocks. Experiments show that the major measurement of our partitioning strategy for data prefetching is much better than conventional uniform-partitioned methods, and the total execution time of visualisation system decreases by 10% on average.
