Large scale microstructure analytics

In this project, we integrate the Dream.3D software package into BisQue. Dream.3D is an open and modular software package that allows users to reconstruct, instantiate, quantify, mesh, handle and visualize microstructure digitally. By integrating it with BisQue, Dream.3D runs can be managed from any computer with a web browser, due to BisQue's web-based nature. Similarly, results and visualizations can be easily shared with collaborators right from a web page, without any software installation. In addition, analysis can be scaled out to run on compute clusters for faster exploration of parameter spaces. Furthermore, BisQue adds provenance tracking, allowing the Dream.3D user to understand exactly the data flow of inputs and outputs and the analysis settings. This greatly improves reproducibility and the understanding of analysis history.
