If I run across one of these while doing something
else or get a nice request I'll list it, but I'm not
about to become a quasi-official clearinghouse for
Argus Numerical Environments
- A comprehensive general purpose graphical environment for the
numerical modeler. These programs enable you to import data from
different sources, graphically define problem domains, automatically
create finite element meshes and finite difference grids, interpolate
data onto these meshes and grids, organize information using GIS and
relational databses, export data to any numerical model, and much
- The Application Visual System is a platform-independent
GUI software and application development environment. It includes
a comprehensive suite of data visualization and analysis capabilities
that incorporates traditional tools such as 2D plots, graphs, and
image processing as well as advanced tools such as 3D interactive
and volume visualization. AVS operates on all major UNIX
workstations and supports the full range of graphics hardware
available on these.
- A scientific graphics and data analysis package for which I
don't have much information yet. Their site is, as they say,
Data Explorer (IBM)
- The IBM Visualization Data Explorer (DX) is a general purpose
software package for scientific data visualization and analysis.
It employs a data-flow-driven client-server execution model
and is currently available on UNIX platforms from Sun, SGI,
IBM, HP, DEC and Data General.
- An advanced interactive visualization tool for the
postprocessing and animation of results from computational
analysis. It has a unique distributed architecture that
allows it to handle very large datasets and take advantage of
multiple computing platforms. It runs on all major UNIX systems,
including supercomputers and minisupercomputers.
- An environment for data analysis, visualization, and application
development. The features include flexible I/O, 2D plotting,
3D graphics, volume rendering, image processing, integrated
mathematics and statistics, a cross-platform GUI toolkit,
and a high-level array-oriented programming language. IDL is
available for and portable across Windows (3.1, 95 and NT),
Mac, PowerMac, UNIX, VMS and Linux.
- A powerful and easy-to-use sophisticated visualization system
and application builder that allows the building of complex
applications for visualizing sets of data. As the name implies,
it was originally designed for SGI platforms although implementations
are now available for Cray, HP, IBM, SGI, and SPARC platforms.
- The latest commercial version of one of the original symbolic
analysis programs, although it has been extended to do much more.
The capabilities include the aforementioned symbolic algebra and
calculus, symbolic and numerical solution of differential equations,
linear algebra, graphics, text processing, hypertext and navigation,
data acquisition and analysis, and more.
- Interactive software for doing mathematics on a wide range of
computer platforms and systems. It is fundamentally a powerful
symbolic computation system, but also features a graphics
interface capable of generating 2D and 3D graphics. A large
number of ancillary packages for specialized applications are
available in the Maple Share Library. It is available on
most UNIX platforms (including Linux) as well as on VMS,
Amiga, MS/DOS, and Windows platforms.
Maple demonstration versions are available for Sun, HP,
DEC RISC, Linux, Mac and Windows platforms.
- A technical computing environment for high-performance
numerical computation and visualization. It integrates numerical
analysis, matrix computation, signal processing, and graphics in
an environment where problems and solutions are expressed just
as they are written mathematically. It is easily extensible and
as such many ancillary packages for specific applications, called
toolboxes, have been written for Matlab that are both commercially
and freely available. Matlab is available for most UNIX platforms
(including Linux) as well as for Mac and PC boxes.
- The features of this package include extensive numerical and
symbolic mathematical capabilities, 2D and 3D graphics, a high-level
programming language, and numerous commercial and freely available
applications. It is available on just about any platform you
can think of, including Linux.
NAG Graphics Library
- A collection of over 100 routines providing the Fortran 77 programmer
with a convenient and versatile means of producing a graphical
representation of numerical or statistical results.
It consists of a collection of high and low level routines (the former
of which call the latter) to perform such tasks as contouring, curve
drawing, etc. Standard output devices supported are PostScript, DEC
ReGIS, GKS, HPGL, lineprinter and X Windows. Binaries and source
are available for UNIX workstations as well as PC platforms.
- A software environment for solving problems requiring the
application of graphics, mathematics, numerics and statistics to
data and equations. It uses a powerful programming language
that allows complex analysis, visualization and application
development to be performed quickly and easily. It is available
on various UNIX platforms (including Linux) and also for Windows.
- A C graphics library that allows you to draw easy color
plots. It runs on Linux, compiles with gcc, and displays on
X Windows. A free demo is available.
- An interactive program designed for general algebraic
computations of interest to mathematicians, scientists, and
engineers. The capabilities include expansion and ordering
of polynomials and rational functions, automatic and user-controlled
simplification of expressions, calculations with symbolic matrices,
arbitrary precision integer and real arithmetic, analytic
differentiation and integration, solution of algebraic equations,
output of expressions in a variety of formats (including TeX
source code), generation of optimized numerical programs from
symbolic input, and much more. Many packages written for
REDUCE are also available. It is available for most UNIX platforms
(including Linux) as well as for PCs running MS/DOS or Windows.
Graphics are displayed via an interface to GNUPLOT.
REDUCE demonstration versions
are available for MS/DOS, Windows 3.1 and Linux
- An advanced scientific math library featuring hundreds of the
most frequently used mathematical library functions. Features
include transforms, optimization, linear algebra,
quadrature/integration, PDEs, approximation, roots and zeros,
nonlinear functions, DEs, eigensystems and much more. This
is sold in binary form for a variety of DOS 16 and 32 bit
compilers and for SUN-OS systems.
Template Graphics Systems
- The products of TGS include FIGraph, a two-call 2D/3D charting
system to quickly generate line, bar, pie and contour graphs, FIGraph,
a system to represent complex engineering, scientific, and business
data sets, FIGARO+, a complete PHIGS+ development system for all
workstation, mainframe, supercomputer and Windows NT systems, and
SGI OpenGL and Open Inventor packages for non-SGI platforms. Their
products are distributed by NAG.
- A transportable software system with state-of-the-art capabilities
for visualizing, manipulating, and analyzing multidimensional,
multimodal image information. It is designed to run on UNIX machines
under X Windows, and as such is available for most popular UNIX
platforms, including Linux.
3DVIEWNIX demonstration versions are available for Sun, SGI,
Linux, and HP platforms.
- A scalable C graphics library designed for use with real- and
non-real-time operating systems. It is written in ANSI C and is
supplied as source code. It includes a generic graphics driver
module to provide hardware specific routines needed to interface
it to the user's graphics hardware, and can be readily ported
to a new system by changing this one module.
- A package to add scanning capability with HP ScanJet scanners
to XV, John Bradley's image manipulation software. XVScan allows
images to be directly acquired from an HP ScanJet scanner quickly
and efficiently. XVScan currently (4/96) works with
Linux and HP-UX workstations.
