Cooperation with Seznam.cz
Seznam.cz uses Anselm supercomputer to calculate 3D models of towns and cities of the Czech Republic. The models and their textures are generated from stereoscopic aerial images employing computationally demanding algorithms. Project duration is expected to be more than 6 months. During this period Anselm will process images of 8000km2 area which is 10% of area of the Czech Republic.
The application was developed for Seznam.cz by external company. In the final stage of the development we have tightly cooperated with Seznam.cz and have proposed a set of modifications to maximize the application performance and efficiency on Anselm supercomputer. The implementation takes advantage of both general purpose processors as well as graphic processing units for highly parallel parts of the algorithms. A full utilization of Anselm’s high performance hardware was achieved thanks to our fine tuning.
