The GMT Home Page QuikGrid QUIKGRID 3-D rendering of a surface represented by scattered data points QuikGrid is free software released under the GNU General Public License. Version 5.4 is the most recent release. Full details are available here. Microsoft is phasing out support for the Windows help facility (WinHLP) that QuikGrid uses. "The Help for this program was created in Windows Help format, which depends on a feature that isn’t included in this version of Windows. Further information is available from Microsoft here. Send email to: retired at (Replace "at" with @ and remove spaces when entering my email address). I am happy to provide what support I can. QUIKGRID is a program which will read in a set of scattered data points (x, y, z) which represents a surface. A dredged channel on a section of the Ganges river QUIKGRID is easy to use.

3D converters software - on Linux - Notes and Code Introduction : This is a page of links to 3D software files --- files that can be used to install (or develop) 3D CONVERTER programs --- on Linux systems --- especially on Ubuntu (around version 9.10 = 2009 Oct, Karmic Koala - and beyond). Many of the links are to locally stored files (source and/or binaries/packages). Furthermore, the info on 3D converters for Linux is consolidated (to a great extent) on this one page --- instead of in many bookmarks in my web browsers on my various machines. In addition, many software sites go dead (or, at least, move). The 3D converter programs that I am talking about are meant to convert (on Linux) between 3D file formats like the following : - 'mm3d' Export-Model-Dialog window - Note that 'mm3d' appears to be able to export '.obj' and '.dxf' files. (Hold mouse cursor over this image, to see the 'mm3d' Open-Model-Dialog window. 3D 'multi-converters' : You can see an example of the Export dialog of the Wings3D modeller at the top of this page.

surfit: open source gridding and contouring software Mesh Generation and Grid Generation: Software This is a list of public domain and commercial mesh generators (click here for other sources of interest). I have listened only programs for which online information exists. There is also a section on papers that review mesh generators. If you are interested in special programs, the following links might guide you directly to interesting places: A list of public domain, downloadable and university codes: Companies offering mesh generation software: Review papers: Other sources of interest: Back to the mesh generation homepage.

SurGe - gridding and mapping software Introduction SurGe is a computer program which enables to generate a surface as an interpolation (approximation) function of two independent variables. The program has the following basic features: Implements the interpolation / approximation method ABOS. Basic input is a simple ASCII file containing X, Y and Z coordinates of points irregularly spaced in some region. The surface can be defined not only by points, but also by spatial (three-dimensional) polylines. So called fault lines can define discontinuity in the generated surface. Installation Windows SurGe was compiled under MS Windows 7 and it was also tested under MS Windows 2000 and MS Windows XP. To install the program, follow these steps: Download and unzip it to SurGe650.exe. The installation creates shortcut (link) icon to the SurGe Project Manager (SPM.EXE) at your desktop. Install WINE Download and unzip it to SurGe650.exe. Registration Useful links
