DSV - a general data visualizer (Duncan Prindle)
DSV is a general graphics package for data visualization and browsing. DSV
stands for Data Set Viewer. A data set is generally any homogeneous collection o
objects, such as the reconstructed space points in the STAR detector or particle
information from an event generator, and is often a rather complex entity.
Reconstructed space points may have x, y and z positions, correlations between
these, deposited ionization, and chi^2 as well as errors on these quantities.
Standard event displays pick out a few of these quantities for display.
Histograming packages usually let you choose what quantities to plot or histogra
but have limited capabilities for interacting with the data.
DSV permits rather general on-the-fly definition of data elements and function
combinations for representation in a 3D space projected to a 2D screen. Object
definitions can be by drag-and-drop or command-line entry. Interaction with the
displayed data is very comprehensive, involving zooms, rotates, translates and
picks to display associated data structures in table widgets. There is extensive
capability for color editing, flagging and data marking and hiding. DSV
currently consists of a hierarchical tree for browsing the structure of a data
file, an event display (qcd) for 3D representations of data sets, and scrollable
table widgets (2D grids of numbers) to present subsets of the data set in tabula
