These illustrations of GLIF infrastructure show the international research and education network bandwidth made available for scheduled application and middleware research experiments as of May 2008. Visualization courtesy of Robert Patterson of the Advanced Visualization Laboratory (AVL) of the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA) at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign UIUC); data compilation by Maxine Brown, Electronic Visualization Laboratory at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC). Funding was provided by GLIF, NCSA, and US National Science Foundation grants # SCI-04-38712 to NCSA/UIUC and # OCI-0441094 to EVL/UIC.
