Abstract This survey chapter discusses recent and ongoing projects in grid generation and scientific visualization at the National Science Foundation (NSF) Engineering Research Center for Computational Field Simulation. The chapter provides a brief overview of standard grid generation techniques and summarizes the design requirements and current functionality of the National Grid Project, a universal, interactive grid generation system. Several projects that have led to powerful visualization systems are discussed
