ParaViewWeb visualization aims to provide a collaborative, remote web interface for 3D visualization with ParaView as a server. Moreover, this also provide a JavaScript API based on the ParaView scripting features and capabilities. Some of the web samples are rich operational clients that allow you to create remote web visualization, join sessions on existing visualizations, and provide rich, interactive user interface for building complex data processing and visualization. A demonstration server is available under the following url http://paraviewweb.kitware.com.

Documentation
