SAL Home DATA Software Packages


DAVID (DAta VIsualization and Diagnostics) system is entirely in 'C' and runs within the Unix operating system, under the X Window System, Version 11R5 and can be printed through any printer supporting PostScript. Graphics can be displayed on black and white as well as color graphics monitors, and can handle graphics on multiple windows as well as on multiple graphics displays simultaneously. DAVID facilitates extraction, tracking, quantification and mathematization of evolving and interacting amorphous objects, from e.g time-dependent multidimensional simulations. DAVID can also provide a highly interactive way to compare different variables with two variable distribution and juxtaposition. It can extract skeletal representation with an interactively controlled smoothing algorithm even from a noisy environment. DAVID can interactively analyze skeletal lines, graphs, display and label quasi-local slope and curvature. An interactive threshold-adjusting tool provides a way to discover hidden coherent structures. DAVID can also produce journal-ready and visual aid hardcopies. Compilation is required for Linux.
