XJRT is an open source Java renderer with a ray tracing backend. Objects can be fed into the renderer either through Java or an XML-based scene description language. Shaders can be written in Java and are instanced using the reflection API. The renderer currently supports a variety of polygons, polygon model formats (3ds, DXF, OBJ, and OFF), spheres and other quartics, cubic patches, heightfields, boxes, torii, blobbies, algebraic surfaces, constructive solid geometry (CSG), and a variety of light sources. Support code is provided for doing tiling, bump mapping, noise based texturing, camera based motion blur, and depth of field.
h5utils is a set of utilities for visualization and conversion of scientific data in the free, portable HDF5 format. Besides providing a simple tool for batch visualization as PNG images, h5utils also includes programs to convert HDF5 datasets into the formats required by other free visualization software (e.g., plain text, Vis5d, and VTK).
OpenGLUT is an open source project to evolve the GLUT API. It uses the FreeGLUT code base as a foundation for extending, enhancing, and refining the library interface. The initial goal is to define and implement OpenGLUT API Version 1.0, which is intended to supercede the GLUT 3.x API.
InformationSpace is a causal set exploration tool. A causal set is basically a set of simple rules that define the relationship between bits in a space time. A common example of this is John Conway's game of life. InformationSpace supports 3D space/time (2D of space, 1D of time). Visualization is in 3D, with Y being time.
GEO is a C++ geometric template class library. Use this library for your graphical, image processing, or scientific applications. It has a rich set of operations with vectors and matrices, 2D and 3D objects (such as finding convex hull and bounding box), triangulation, tesselation, etc.
TNV (The Network Visualizer or Time-based Network Visualizer) depicts network traffic by visualizing packets and links between local and remote hosts. It is intended for network traffic analysis to facilitate learning what constitutes 'normal' activity on a network, investigating packet details and security events, or for network troubleshooting. It can open saved libpcap (from tcpdump, windump, ethereal, etc.) formatted files or capture live packets on the wire, and export data in libpcap format or save the data to a MySQL database to enable the examination of trends over time.
