Visualisation

This page lists software tools for visualisation and analysis in astrophysics. Some are designed to work with a specific simulation tool and this is noted in the comments.

Visualisation and analysis

AstroMD

ParaView

  • Keywords:analysis, grid, interact, parallel, particle, vis
  • Supported file formats: Needs filling in.
  • Parallel analysis and vis environment. Uses (publicly available) VTK and Qt. An example of how it can be used for astrophysics applications (including some analysis) is given in this paper.

Salsa

SimAn

  • Keywords:analysis, interact, particle, python, vis
  • Supported file formats: Tipsy, GADGET
  • Visualisation and analysis tool for particle based simulations. Can handle python scripts for analysis and uses OpenGL for super-fast graphics rendering.

Tipsy

Visualisation only

Flash View

IFrIT

OpenDX

SPLASH

  • Keywords:particle (sph), vis
  • Supported file formats: ASCII, GADGET, Gasoline, VINE, DRAGON
  • Visualisation tool for smoothed particle hydrodynamics (sph) simulations. Includes many useful tools specific to sph problems.
