This thesis discusses the design and development of the Visual Interactive Simulation Interface Tool VISIT. VISIT was designed to provide the graphical representation and user interface for a simulation that is running on another processor utilizing internet communications. The system provides support for various input devices to control the simulation display and environment. Simulation objects are displayed using either a three-dimensional wireframe representation or a Gouraud shaded representation. Viewer interaction to the simulation is provided by a collection of commands that allow the viewer to initialize, start, stop, abort, and restart the simulations. The viewer also has the ability to establish checkpoints. Upon reaching a checkpoint the viewer can step through the output display andor manipulate the objects within the simulation.
