ParaView is an open-source multiple-platform application for interactive, scientific visualization. It has a client–server architecture to enable remote visualization of datasets. It can be driven with a feature-rich Python interface. ParaView is based on the VTK toolkit, a library for computer graphics, image processing and visualization. ParaView has been successfully used at CSCS in many fields ranging from Physics, Engineering, Fluid Dynamics, Molecular Science, Climate and Weather, Astro-physics, etc.

This course addresses scientists with a strong interest in efficient scientific visualization of 3D data, for use on desktops and on our main Cray supercomputer.

This course combines lectures and hands-on sessions.

The following topics will be covered:

  • ParaView latest features in version 5.6 and 5.7.
  • Data formats and data interfaces for efficient distributed computations.
  • Interactive and batch parallel visualization.
  • Single-node SMP parallelism, MPI-based parallelism.
  • Custom VTK python applications with simple Qt GUI.
  • Interfaces to standard Python packages, Python Programmable Filters.
  • Animation scripting, with steady or time-dependent data series.
  • Volume Rendering of scalar data.
  • Ray-tracing and Path-tracing (data, materials, progressive rendering).
