What kind of data is this?  Is it a rectilinear or structured or
unstructured grid??  In any case you can use the vtk data format
information on the data format is avlbl in the appendices of the VTK
book and also online here:

If you are looking for examples, get a hold of the VTK CD that ships
with the book (and separately sold also) and look in the vtkdata
directory.  If you dont have access to either, download the data from:


There are links to the data here with some information on what to get
