ChinaGrid Support Platform (CGSP) is a grid middleware developed for the deployment of ChinaGrid. CGSP aims to integrate all sorts of heterogeneous resources distributed over CERNET, and provide transparent, high performance, reliable, secure and convenient grid services for scientific researchers and engineers. In addition to supply the portal to ChinaGrid, CGSP offers a whole set of tools for developing and deploying various grid applications. Analyzing large and distributed image dataset is a crucial step in understanding and constructing bioinformatics, military and medical systems. Due to the large scale dataset, such analyzing work is challenging. In this paper, a use case scenario of image processing with CGSP is presented. Such use cases illustrate how to migrate the traditional image process applications to grid systems for different roles of image processing. The purpose of this paper is to introduce the CGSP and let the engineers and scientists from different research areas know how to build a grid testbed with CGSP and how to deploy applications on it smoothly.
