==Calculator== | |||

Compute new attribute arrays as function of existing arrays. | |||

The Calculator filter computes a new data array or new point coordinates as a function of existing scalar or vector arrays. If point-centered arrays are used in the computation of a new data array, the resulting array will also be point-centered. Similarly, computations using cell-centered arrays will produce a new cell-centered array. If the function is computing point coordinates, the result of the function must be a three-component vector. The Calculator interface operates similarly to a scientific calculator. In creating the function to evaluate, the standard order of operations applies. | |||

Each of the calculator functions is described below. Unless otherwise noted, enclose the operand in parentheses using the ( and ) buttons. | |||

Clear: Erase the current function (displayed in the read-only text box above the calculator buttons). | |||

/: Divide one scalar by another. The operands for this function are not required to be enclosed in parentheses. | |||

*: Multiply two scalars, or multiply a vector by a scalar (scalar multiple). The operands for this function are not required to be enclosed in parentheses. | |||

-: Negate a scalar or vector (unary minus), or subtract one scalar or vector from another. The operands for this function are not required to be enclosed in parentheses. | |||

+: Add two scalars or two vectors. The operands for this function are not required to be enclosed in parentheses. | |||

sin: Compute the sine of a scalar. | |||

cos: Compute the cosine of a scalar. | |||

tan: Compute the tangent of a scalar. | |||

asin: Compute the arcsine of a scalar. | |||

acos: Compute the arccosine of a scalar. | |||

atan: Compute the arctangent of a scalar. | |||

sinh: Compute the hyperbolic sine of a scalar. | |||

cosh: Compute the hyperbolic cosine of a scalar. | |||

tanh: Compute the hyperbolic tangent of a scalar. | |||

min: Compute minimum of two scalars. | |||

max: Compute maximum of two scalars. | |||

x^y: Raise one scalar to the power of another scalar. The operands for this function are not required to be enclosed in parentheses. | |||

sqrt: Compute the square root of a scalar. | |||

e^x: Raise e to the power of a scalar. | |||

log: Compute the logarithm of a scalar (deprecated. same as log10). | |||

log10: Compute the logarithm of a scalar to the base 10. | |||

ln: Compute the logarithm of a scalar to the base 'e'. | |||

ceil: Compute the ceiling of a scalar. | |||

floor: Compute the floor of a scalar. | |||

abs: Compute the absolute value of a scalar. | |||

v1.v2: Compute the dot product of two vectors. The operands for this function are not required to be enclosed in parentheses. | |||

cross: Compute cross product of two vectors. | |||

mag: Compute the magnitude of a vector. | |||

norm: Normalize a vector. | |||

The operands are described below. | |||

The digits 0 - 9 and the decimal point are used to enter constant scalar values. | |||

iHat, jHat, and kHat are vector constants representing unit vectors in the X, Y, and Z directions, respectively. | |||

The scalars menu lists the names of the scalar arrays and the components of the vector arrays of either the point-centered or cell-centered data. The vectors menu lists the names of the point-centered or cell-centered vector arrays. The function will be computed for each point (or cell) using the scalar or vector value of the array at that point (or cell). | |||

The filter operates on any type of data set, but the input data set must have at least one scalar or vector array. The arrays can be either point-centered or cell-centered. The Calculator filter's output is of the same data set type as the input. | |||

The Cell Centers filter places a point at the center of each cell in the input data set. The center computed is the parametric center of the cell, not necessarily the geometric or bounding box center. The cell attributes of the input will be associated with these newly created points of the output. You have the option of creating a vertex cell per point in the outpuut. This is useful because vertex cells are rendered, but points are not. The points themselves could be used for placing glyphs (using the Glyph filter). The Cell Centers filter takes any type of data set as input and produces a polygonal data set as output. | |||

The Generic Clip filter cuts away a portion of the input data set using a plane, a sphere, a box, or a scalar value. The menu in the Clip Function portion of the interface allows the user to select which implicit function to use or whether to clip using a scalar value. Making this selection loads the appropriate user interface. For the implicit functions, the appropriate 3D widget (plane, sphere, or box) is also displayed. The use of these 3D widgets, including their user interface components, is discussed in section 7.4. | |||

If an implicit function is selected, the clip filter returns that portion of the input data set that lies inside the function. If Scalars is selected, then the user must specify a scalar array to clip according to. The clip filter will return the portions of the data set whose value in the selected Scalars array is larger than the Clip value. Regardless of the selection from the Clip Function menu, if the Inside Out option is checked, the opposite portions of the data set will be returned. | |||

This filter operates on all types of data sets, and it returns unstructured grid data on output. | |||

To instead add several evenly spaced contours, use the controls in the Generate range of values section. Select the number of contour values to generate using the Number of Values slider. The Range slider controls the interval in which to generate the contour values. Once the number of values and range have been selected, click the Generate button. The new values will be added to the Contour Values list. To delete a value from the Contour Values list, select the value and click the Delete button. (If no value is selected, the last value in the list will be removed.) Clicking the Delete All button removes all the values in the list.

==Delaunay 2D== | |||

Create 2D Delaunay triangulation of input points. It expects a vtkPointSet as input and produces vtkPolyData as output. The points are expected to be in a mostly planar distribution. | |||

Delaunay2D is a filter that constructs a 2D Delaunay triangulation from a list of input points. These points may be represented by any dataset of type vtkPointSet and subclasses. The output of the filter is a polygonal dataset containing a triangle mesh. | |||

The 2D Delaunay triangulation is defined as the triangulation that satisfies the Delaunay criterion for n-dimensional simplexes (in this case n=2 and the simplexes are triangles). This criterion states that a circumsphere of each simplex in a triangulation contains only the n+1 defining points of the simplex. In two dimensions, this translates into an optimal triangulation. That is, the maximum interior angle of any triangle is less than or equal to that of any possible triangulation. | |||

Delaunay triangulations are used to build topological structures from unorganized (or unstructured) points. The input to this filter is a list of points specified in 3D, even though the triangulation is 2D. Thus the triangulation is constructed in the x-y plane, and the z coordinate is ignored (although carried through to the output). You can use the option ProjectionPlaneMode in order to compute the best-fitting plane to the set of points, project the points and that plane and then perform the triangulation using their projected positions and then use it as the plane in which the triangulation is performed. | |||

The Delaunay triangulation can be numerically sensitive in some cases. To prevent problems, try to avoid injecting points that will result in triangles with bad aspect ratios (1000:1 or greater). In practice this means inserting points that are "widely dispersed", and enables smooth transition of triangle sizes throughout the mesh. (You may even want to add extra points to create a better point distribution.) If numerical problems are present, you will see a warning message to this effect at the end of the triangulation process. | |||

Warning: | |||

Points arranged on a regular lattice (termed degenerate cases) can be triangulated in more than one way (at least according to the Delaunay criterion). The choice of triangulation (as implemented by this algorithm) depends on the order of the input points. The first three points will form a triangle; other degenerate points will not break this triangle. | |||

Points that are coincident (or nearly so) may be discarded by the algorithm. This is because the Delaunay triangulation requires unique input points. The output of the Delaunay triangulation is supposedly a convex hull. In certain cases this implementation may not generate the convex hull. | |||

==Delaunay 3D== | |||

Create a 3D Delaunay triangulation of input points. It expects a vtkPointSet as input and produces vtkUnstructuredGrid as output. | |||

Delaunay3D is a filter that constructs a 3D Delaunay triangulation | |||

from a list of input points. These points may be represented by any | |||

dataset of type vtkPointSet and subclasses. The output of the filter | |||

is an unstructured grid dataset. Usually the output is a tetrahedral | |||

mesh, but if a non-zero alpha distance value is specified (called | |||

the "alpha" value), then only tetrahedra, triangles, edges, and | |||

vertices lying within the alpha radius are output. In other words, | |||

non-zero alpha values may result in arbitrary combinations of | |||

tetrahedra, triangles, lines, and vertices. (The notion of alpha | |||

value is derived from Edelsbrunner's work on "alpha shapes".) | |||

The 3D Delaunay triangulation is defined as the triangulation that | |||

satisfies the Delaunay criterion for n-dimensional simplexes (in | |||

this case n=3 and the simplexes are tetrahedra). This criterion | |||

states that a circumsphere of each simplex in a triangulation | |||

contains only the n+1 defining points of the simplex. (See text for | |||

more information.) While in two dimensions this translates into an | |||

"optimal" triangulation, this is not true in 3D, since a measurement | |||

for optimality in 3D is not agreed on. | |||

Delaunay triangulations are used to build topological structures | |||

from unorganized (or unstructured) points. The input to this filter | |||

is a list of points specified in 3D. (If you wish to create 2D | |||

triangulations see Delaunay2D.) The output is an unstructured | |||

grid. | |||

The Delaunay triangulation can be numerically sensitive. To prevent | |||

problems, try to avoid injecting points that will result in | |||

triangles with bad aspect ratios (1000:1 or greater). In practice | |||

this means inserting points that are "widely dispersed", and enables | |||

smooth transition of triangle sizes throughout the mesh. (You may | |||

even want to add extra points to create a better point | |||

distribution.) If numerical problems are present, you will see a | |||

warning message to this effect at the end of the triangulation | |||

process. | |||

Warning: | |||

Points arranged on a regular lattice (termed degenerate cases) can | |||

be triangulated in more than one way (at least according to the | |||

Delaunay criterion). The choice of triangulation (as implemented by | |||

this algorithm) depends on the order of the input points. The first | |||

four points will form a tetrahedron; other degenerate points | |||

(relative to this initial tetrahedron) will not break it. | |||

Points that are coincident (or nearly so) may be discarded by the | |||

algorithm. This is because the Delaunay triangulation requires | |||

unique input points. You can control the definition of coincidence | |||

with the "Tolerance" instance variable. | |||

The output of the Delaunay triangulation is supposedly a convex | |||

hull. In certain cases this implementation may not generate the | |||

convex hull. This behavior can be controlled by the Offset instance | |||

variable. Offset is a multiplier used to control the size of the | |||

initial triangulation. The larger the offset value, the more likely | |||

you will generate a convex hull; and the more likely you are to see | |||

numerical problems. | |||

The implementation of this algorithm varies from the 2D Delaunay | |||

The | algorithm (i.e., Delaunay2D) in an important way. When points are | ||

injected into the triangulation, the search for the enclosing | |||

tetrahedron is quite different. In the 3D case, the closest | |||

previously inserted point point is found, and then the connected | |||

tetrahedra are searched to find the containing one. (In 2D, a "walk" | |||

towards the enclosing triangle is performed.) If the triangulation | |||

is Delaunay, then an enclosing tetrahedron will be found. However, | |||

in degenerate cases an enclosing tetrahedron may not be found and | |||

the point will be rejected. | |||

This filter computes the min, max, mean, raw moments M2 through M4, standard deviation, skewness, and kurtosis for each array you select.<p> | |||

The model is simply a univariate Gaussian distribution with the mean and standard deviation provided. Data is assessed using this model by detrending the data (i.e., subtracting the mean) and then dividing by the standard deviation. Thus the assessment is an array whose entries are the number of standard deviations from the mean that each input point lies. | |||
