Scientific data treated by current peta-scale computers and coming exa-scale computers is quite huge and it is known as "Big Data". For a better understanding and analysis of this massive amount of information, visualization is an important task. Large scale, efficient, and visually compelling visualization has many challenges.

In this talk, I will introduce the most promising visualization technique for big data. Namely, ray tracing method from Light Transport theory and image composition. I will also show some recent large scale visualization results using this technique on the K computer, a 10 peta-flops supercomputer with up to 65,536 computing nodes.
