Welcome To ROGER

BRIDGING BIG DATA, BIG HARDWARE, & BIG MIND

In the fields of engineering and science, the immense data collected incorporates time-series and spatial components requiring very special processing if analyzing at a fine-grained scale. ROGER aims to make this data processing easier, faster, more reliable, and above all more insightful.

Resourcing Open Geospatial Education and Research, ROGER is the world's first-ever CyberGIS Supercomputer designed especially for computationally intensive geospatial data processing and analysis.

Where is ROGER?

ROGER is located at the National Petascale Computing Facility» on the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign campus and is managed by the CyberGIS Center for Advanced Digital and Spatial Studies».

SOFTWARE

No where else in the world will you find a supercomputer with GIS software preinstalled and optimized for spatial parallel processing such as that on ROGER

  • Geospatial enabled software for geospatial analysis.
  • Open-source to facilitate collaboration and portability. No need to worry about proprietary restrictions.
  • GPU's to enable and enhance intricate graphics.


 

 

High-Speed Network To Interact With Your Results

ROGER supports applications for visualization, but what's different here is the high-speed network connection that enables realistic, interactive visualizations.

Vast Storage That's Shared

Big Data would be useless if not for a large storage system. ROGER emphasizes storage. Take for example the supercomputer Blue Waters, which processes at a peak performance of 13.34 PF. ROGER has about 1% of Blue Waters processing power, however 20% of its data storage. GIS analytics would be non-existent if not for contextual knowledge. This entails the processor knowing both what it is processing and what is around it.

Pre-loaded Data

Anyone familiar with data collection knows just how tedious and time consuming it is, especially when it comes to geographic data. Here at the CyberGIS Center we try and take some of the heaving lifting off of your hands so you can focus on the analysis portion. Our team actively collects and imports data for end users to freely utilize.

Expert Team

When you work on ROGER you also gain an extensive network of expert resources.

  • The CyberGIS Center can help design, optimize, and work through some of your team's toughest problems. We know GIS and we know computers, but most of all, we know how to integrate the two to get you the best results in the least amount of time. 
  • The ROGER community is compromised of skilled researchers from all across the nation, ready and willing to share insight and help advance your own research.
