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.
This version contains many enhancements and bugfixes. It was upgraded to VTK 5.8.0. Windows distributions now contain a parallel compute engine based on MSMPI. Cumulative query selections were enhanced so they can cache intermediate results obtained from executing filters over time. Queries provide a more uniform interface in the Python interface. 2D multi-resolution rendering capability was added for 2D AMR data. The Streamline plot now works with AMR data. Libsim now allows mesh-sized ghost zone arrays to be used.
