IRIS EXPLORER AVAILABLE ON THE ORIGIN 2000
What Is IRIS Explorer?
IRIS Explorer was originally developed by Silicon
Graphics for their workstations. It is a modular visualization
environment - you create your application interactively by
connecting modules together using a point-and-click interface.
IRIS Explorer comes with about 150 modules (more are available) which
perform tasks such as reading in, filtering, and transforming data,
creating graphical objects like line graphs, histograms,
contours, surfaces, isosurfaces, volumes, vector plots, etc., and
displaying them together in a window with full 3D interaction.
A number of modules are built using Silicon Graphics'
ImageVision library, and provide a large amount of image
You can create your own modules to read or translate data
using a point-and-click tool called the DataScribe, or use the
Module Builder - another tool bundled with the system - to
transform your existing routines (in the form of C, C++ or
FORTRAN source, or even as pure executables) into
modules for use from within IRIS Explorer.
Finally, IRIS Explorer provides the application developer
with the ability to customize the look and feel of the
application before handing it over to the end-user.
Online information is available via the World Wide Web
which also contains links to the ftp sites and other
sources of information about IRIS Explorer and its use.
