BRL-CAD is a powerful constructive solid geometry solid modeling system that includes an interactive geometry editor, ray-tracing support for rendering and geometric analysis, path-tracing for realistic image synthesis, network distributed framebuffer support, and image and signal-processing tools.
OpenVRML is a VRML and X3D browser plug-in and C++ toolkit for incorporating VRML/X3D support into applications. It provides VRML97 and Classic VRML X3D parsers, a runtime, and an OpenGL renderer as C++ libraries. The renderer is fully separate from the runtime library so that users can also provide their own renderer. The OpenVRML browser is provided as a D-Bus service, and is embeddable in host applications using XEmbed. The distribution provides both a stand-alone host and a host that runs as a Mozilla plug-in.
VMD (Visual Molecular Dynamics) is designed for the visualization and analysis of biological systems such as proteins, nucleic acids, lipid bilayer assemblies, etc. It may be used to view more general molecules, as VMD can read standard Protein Data Bank (PDB) files and display the contained structure. VMD provides a wide variety of methods for rendering and coloring a molecule: simple points and lines, CPK spheres and cylinders, licorice bonds, backbone tubes and ribbons, cartoon drawings, and others. VMD can be used to animate and analyze the trajectory of a molecular dynamics (MD) simulation. In particular, VMD can act as a graphical front end for an external MD program by displaying and animating a molecule undergoing simulation on a remote computer. VMD uses OpenGL and OpenGL Programmable Shading Language for high performance rendering of large structures.
KuickShow displays images using all available space, without wasting it with bars or menus. It also has smart automatic zooming which scales images according to size. You can use the integrated file browser to choose images, or navigate through a folder with the mousewheel or the keyboard. It also has fullscreen view and slideshow, and supports a wide range of image formats.
WilmaScope is a Java3D application that creates real-time 3D animations of dynamic graph (network) structures. It comes with a number of layout algorithm plugins, and supports the easy creation of plugins for new layout algorithms. 3D geometries for graph element glyphs and algorithms for graph generation and modification are loaded dynamically as plugins, providing an extremely flexible platform for all manner of graph visualisation applications. The system has been applied with considerable success to a number of graph visualisation problems.
IMGV is a cross-platform image viewer. It includes many standard and unique features such as a GUI that doesn't get in the way of viewing your images, a file/directory browser, slideshows, zooming, rotating, on-the-fly EXIF viewing, gamma correction, histograms, fullscreen support, wallpaper setting, the ability to view 4 images on the screen at once (and even slideshow them), adjustable thumbnail sizes, image playlists, viewing and downloading images from Web sites, movie playing, file searching/filtering, multiple directory loading, transitional effects, image hiding with password protection, and more.
white_dune is a graphical VRML97/X3DV editor, simple NURBS/Superformula 3D modeller, animation tool, and VRML97/X3DV commandline compiler in development. VRML97 (Virtual Reality Modeling Language) is the ISO standard for displaying 3D data over the Web via browser plugins ("HTML for realtime 3D"). X3DV is the direct successor of VRML97. VRML97 and X3DV have support for animation, real-time interaction, and multimedia (images, movies, and sounds). white_dune can read, create, and display VRML97/X3DV files and let the user change the scenegraph/fields. It also has support for stereoscopic view via "quadbuffer"-capable stereo visuals, and support for 3D input devices like a joystick, spaceball, or magnetic tracker.
Mapivi is a cross-platform picture manager / organizer, viewer, and batch processor. It is able to display and edit JPEG meta-information, including IPTC/IIM information, EXIF data, and embedded comments. Pictures can be organized by adding them to virtual folders (using hierarchical keywords). It also serves as a frontend for performing lossless rotation, lossless cropping, resizing, and filtering, and can display images as thumbnails. It has a fast and powerful picture search feature that can search in all picture meta-information.
