Introduction to Fields module


Fields module is used for analysis and post-processing of numerical simulation results. It is based upon ParaVis module, MEDReader ParaVis module plugin and MEDCoupling library. Main advantage of this module is that it provides a simplified (in comparison with ParaVis module) way to create different presentations. After applying this simplified visualization it is possible to switch to ParaVis module and complete a more complex presentation if necessary.

Fields module uses Python API of the ParaVis module to build presentations. Any presentation in the Fields module is a pipeline of the ParaVis filters, which always starts with MEDReader. For example, Plot3D presentation is a sequence of the following ParaVis filters: MEDReader > Calculator > WarpByScalar.
