VisIt is an interactive parallel visualization and graphical analysis tool for viewing scientific data. Users can quickly generate visualizations from their data, animate them through time, manipulate them, and save the resulting images for presentations. VisIt contains a rich set of visualization features so that you can view your data in a variety of ways. It can be used to visualize scalar and vector fields defined on two- and three-dimensional (2D and 3D) structured and unstructured meshes. It was designed to interactively handle very large data set sizes in the terascale range, and works well down to small data sets in the kilobyte range.
The GNOME Structured File Library is a utility library for reading and writing structured file formats. Support for MS OLE2 streams is complete, as is zip import. There is also support for document metadata and some initial work on decompressing VBA streams in OLE files for future conversion to other languages. This library replaces libole2 and is used in gnumeric, mrproject, abiword, libwv2, koffice. It is also part of the AAF format.
CodeBase is a high-speed xBASE compatible database engine for C/C++, Visual Basic, Delphi & Java programmers. You can use CodeBase to write high performance database applications that are multi-user compatible with FoxPro, dBASE and Clipper, create anything from a Java applet to a full-blown Windows database application to a simple DOS utility, write scalable applications that can be deployed as single-user, multi-user or client/server, all without changing any of your source code, and port your applications to Windows, DOS, UNIX, OS/2, and Macintosh. There's a free 30-Day Test Drive option available. CodeBase is available for every major operating system including Windows XP, 2000, 9x, NT, CE, DOS, OS/2, Macintosh, and a variety of Linux and UNIX platforms including Solaris, SunOS, HP/UX, AIX, SCO, and others.
The Snack sound extension adds commands for sound play/record and sound visualization, e.g. waveforms and spectrograms. It supports in- memory sound objects, file based audio, streaming audio, WAV, AU, AIFF, and MP3 file formats, synchronous and asynchronous playback. The visualization canvas item types update in real-time and can output postscript. New commands and file formats can be added using the Snack C-API.
wxDesigner is a dialog editor and RAD tool for the wxWindows C++ library and its popular Python and Perl bindings. It includes a visual dialog editor, a bitmap editor, a syntax-highlighting source editor, and built-in mechanisms for automatic generation of file skeletons, GUI classes, event handlers, and getter functions. It provides an identical user interface and identical functionality for C++, Perl, and Python, and it can generate output in C++, Python, Perl, and XML.
EMAN is a scientific image processing suite with full Python bindings. While it is mainly designed to perform single-particle reconstructions of individual molecules, it may also have uses for many other imaging methods. Single particle reconstruction is a method where projection images of individual molecules in random orientations are processed to produce a 3D structure of the molecule in question. The library can process 1-3 dimensional data in a variety of formats, including a variety of Fourier and real-space filters and many more esoteric image processing routines.
