Back to wxGUI page.

See also wxGUI.Nviz manual page.

wxNviz is a wxGUI extension which allows users to realistically render multiple surfaces (raster data) in a 3D space, optionally using thematic coloring, draping 2D vector data over the surfaces, displaying 3D vector data in the space, and visualization of volume data (3D raster data).

Screenshots

2008-06-27: Display raster map from layer tree in 2.5D (surface)
2008-07-05: Support for vector data (2D lines) added
2008-07-26: Support for vector point data
2008-08-02: 3D vector data support
2008-08-09: Initial support for volumetric data
2010-05-31: 3D view tools window integrated into Layer Manager
Lighting control panel in Layer Manager (2010-06-17)
Fringe control panel in Layer Manager (2010-06-23)
Redirect messages to wxGUI (2010-08-08)
Displaying raster (surface), 2D vector and 3D raster (volume) in the 3D space (2010-08-16)
