OpenDX | 3D scientific visualization software | GPL | Scientists Students |
OpenDX is a package for visualization of 3D data. It features surface plots, volume plots, 3D-plots of functions and visualization of time-dependent (4D) data. It is programmable via a visual interface by connecting various functional modules for visualizing and interactively or non-interactively manipulating and browsing data. |
Process Visualization Browser | HMI(Human Machine Interface) & SCADA(Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) Software | GPL | Process & Electrical Engineers | SCADA (supervisory control and data acquisition) is a category of software application program for process control, the gathering of data in real time from remote locations in order to control equipment and conditions. SCADA is used in power plants as well as in oil and gas refining, telecommunications, transportation, and water and waste control. The hardware gathers and feeds data into a computer that has SCADA software installed. The computer then processes this data and presents it in a timely manner ( HMI ). SCADA also records and logs all events into a file stored on a hard disk or sends them to a printer. SCADA warns when conditions become hazardous by sounding alarms. |
QtiPlot | Data analysis and scientific plotting | GPL | Scientists | A Packman package exists |
R | Environment for statistical computing and graphics | GPL | Scientists Students Statisticians |
