PISTON (Portable Data Parallel Visualization and Analysis)

The Portable Data-Parallel Visualization and Analysis (also referred to as PISTON) is a cross-platform software library providing frequently used operations for scientific visualization and data analysis. The algorithms for these operations are specified in a data-parallel way. By using nVidia's freely downloadable Thrust library and our own tools, we can generate executable codes for different acceleration hardware architectures (GPUSs and multi-core CPUs) from a single version of source code. The library is designed to be extensible and is intended to be integrated into other visualization applications.
