ParaView is an extensible, reconfigurable framework that is used to inspect data in many forms. The entire project is open source with a very liberal license and has been designed from the start to be reused and extended wherever its capabilities are useful. The familiar desktop application platform is just one configuration of the modular, parallel components that make up ParaView. Other “flavors” include the extensible and reproducible python interface, immersion in advanced display environments, in situ coupling with simulation code via Catalyst, ubiquitous access through web based visualization and of course scalable processing in High Performance Supercomputing (HPC) platforms.
