Abstract: A general purpose client/server architecture has been developed to effect the modernization of legacy code. This technique utilizes platform independent graphical user interfaces and interactive visualizations. The client/server configuration exploits a content-taggable data stream which allows seamless integration with the legacy application. This allows the client to orchestrate the collection of data in a more graphically interactive manner than was present in the original legacy interface. Application of this architecture to a NASA Global Scientific Model was demonstrated. The enhanced model incorporating this architecture will support data interpretation for NASAs TIMED satellite mission, including distributed investigations managed via a remote server.
