    Remote scientific visualization, where rendering services are provided by larger scale systems than are available on the desktop, are becoming increasingly important as dataset sizes increase beyond the capabilities of desktop workstations. Uptake of such services relies on access to suitable visualization applications and the ability to view the resulting visualization in a convenient form. We apply five rules from the e-Science community to meet these goals with the porting of a commercial visualization package to a large scale system and the integration of this code with the Access Grid. Example use cases from Materials Science are considered. © The Eurographics Association 2010.
