below are some of the projects that utilize capabilities available within the
NaradaBrokering substrate. NaradaBrokering has been deployed in domains such as
Earthquake Science, Particle Physics, Environmental Modeling, Geo-science
Visualizations, Virtual Environments, and Conferencing Systems.

here please send us a representative screen-shot, a brief write up and a URL if
||The NASA-funded QuakeSim project (http://quakesim.jpl.nasa.gov/)
uses NaradaBrokering to manage workflows that connect distributed
services, and also to support GPS filters delivering real-time GPS data
to both human and application consumers.
The Clarens (http://clarens.sourceforge.net/)
effort by the High Energy Physics group at Caltech has developed a
framework for wrapping ROOT (a powerful software from CERN) capabilities
as distributed services. As part of this project, we are developing a
loosely-coupled framework using NaradaBrokering to discover, and
load-balance access, to services that are available to physicists for
analyzing, and collaborating over, data produced in particle physics
This project at Clemson University is
funded under the Program of Integrated Study for Coastal Environmental
Sustainability (PISCES), which is designed to address environmental
sustainability issues that can accompany coastal development. The
current study incorporates groundwater monitoring, surface water quality
and quantity monitoring, weather and a
variety of ecological measurements. The project utilizes
NaradaBrokering to provide a flexible and reliable
layer to move observation data from a wide variety of sensor sources to
users that have diverse data management and processing requirements.
The commercial Internet Meeting
software, Anabas(http://www. anabas.com),
incorporates support for shared displays for sharing applications
besides incorporating support for shared whiteboards, and chat tools.
Anabas uses NaradaBrokering for its content dissemination and messaging
requirements. On a daily basis Anabas supports several online meetings
in the US, Hong Kong and mainland China.
The NSF-funded Web-IS
effort at the by the Supercomputing Institute at the University of Minnesota and Florida State University has
deployed NaradaBrokering in the context of Geo-science visualizations.
Second Life and Virtual Environments
|The NSF sponsored
project is creating virtual environments that recreate land under
environmental monitoring. Virtual objects are being designed to act as
that equivalent of sensors deployed in the field. These virtual sensors
are connected to real-time data via NaradaBrokering. This provides
scientists with a virtual collaborative space that they can use to
monitor the field virtually but with real data: this is real-life
|| The GlobalMMCS project (http://www.globalmmcs.org),
which is an A/V conferencing system that federates multiple multimedia
codecs and incorporates support for mixing multiple video streams into a
single mixed stream. GlobalMMCS uses NaradaBrokering for all its stream
