Projects / Cassandra


Cassandra is a scientific data viewer based on VTK. Cassandra provides dynamic interaction with the VTK pipeline and enables the user to load plug-ins dynamically in order to perform specific tasks in data manipulation and visualisation. Cassandra is open and modular, and can easily be extended to new filters through a set of dynamically loadable plug-ins. A plug-in template is provided to help users to develop and share their own plug-ins. This approach allows users to perform complex filtering without any specific knowledge of VTK or C++.

        A new Python/Jython scripts corner
        A new Python/Jython scripts corner has been added to the project. This page contains processing scripts and additionnal data and examples. They illustrate how to use Cassandra through the Jython console.

        All scripts are hosted on a So6 synchroniser, a new versioning system, included in the LibreSource platform.
