ParaView is used for visualization of data. It can show you large 3D-datasets and interactively rotate the view around all axes. It can show:
- structured (uniform rectilinear, non-uniform rectilinear, and curvilinear grids), unstructured, polygonal and image data.
- Vectors fields (arrows, cones, lines, spheres, and various 2D glyphs)
- a sub-region of a dataset can be extracted by cutting or clipping with an arbitrary plane (all data types)
- warp (displace) the points in a dataset with scalars (given a user defined displacement vector) or with vectors (unavailable for non-linear rectilinear grids)
It also has a lot of import/export filters.
The user interface written with Tk
and C++, the program is scriptable via Tcl
. The visualization relies on vtk
, for which Tcl bindings exist.
