MathGL is a library for making high-quality scientific graphics under Linux and Windows, fast data plotting and handling of large data arrays, working in window and console modes, and easily embedding into other programs. It has more than 40 general types of graphics for 1d, 2d, and 3d data arrays. It can export graphics to raster and vector (EPS or SVG) formats. It has an OpenGL interface and can be used from console programs. It has functions for data handling and MGL language scripting for simplification of data plotting. It has several types of transparency and smoothed lightning, vector fonts and TeX-like formula drawing, an arbitrary curvilinear coordinate system, and many other useful things.
Meters is a set of Java/Swing components for creating live, realtime dashboards which visualize telemetric data. It provides visually rich components with organic movement, which gets the user interface out of the way, allowing the data to communicate. It is implementation-agnostic. It provides easily-extended interfaces and base classes which allow you to integrate your existing data sources so you can create a simple Java wrapper around your existing technology and incorporate your telemetry data into Meters.
JavaPlot is a library that can be used as a way to create gnuplot plots on the fly through pure Java commands. In contrast with other common gnuplot Java libraries, it uses Java structures to store the various plot parameters, including datasets. Moreover, it is flexible enough to give special parameters to gnuplot, even if the library does not yet support it. It uses Java's Exceptions to inform the user if something went wrong.
GRAL is a library for creating high quality plots and charts in Java. Many plot types are available like scatter plot, bubble plots, line plots, area plots, pie charts, and bar charts. Additionally, GRAL can exchange and process data (smoothing), and various plug-ins allow the import and export of data and graphics to formats like CSV, JPEG, PNG, EPS, PDF, or SVG.
Dandelion is a 3D graph rendering application which can be controlled across a network. Its main purpose is to allow clear network graphs to be rendered in a window, which can be controlled by a separate application or the user. The Dandelion visualization is actually controlled by issuing simple commands to it across the network (although this could all be happening on a single machine). The Dandelion source includes a set of very simple libraries which can be incorporated into other applications and which can be used to send these commands. Libraries are included for C, C#, Java, and Python. The project was developed at Liverpool John Moores University within the PROTECT Centre.
BRL-CAD is a powerful constructive solid geometry solid modeling system that includes an interactive geometry editor, ray-tracing support for rendering and geometric analysis, path-tracing for realistic image synthesis, network distributed framebuffer support, and image and signal-processing tools.
Equalizer is middleware for creating and deploying parallel OpenGL-based applications. It enables applications to benefit from multiple graphics cards, processors, and computers to scale rendering performance, visual quality, and display size. An Equalizer-based application runs unmodified on any visualization system, from a simple workstation to large scale graphics clusters, multi-GPU workstations, and Virtual Reality installations.
VectorGraphics2D can export Java painting operations to Encapsulated PostScript (EPS), Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG), or Portable Document Format (PDF) files. It supports the rendering of all geometric shapes provided by the Java language. More advanced features like transparency or clipping paths can be used as well. It has a very small footprint and can be easily used as a replacement for Java's java.awt.Graphics2D class.
