VTK is a general-purpose vis package.  So, yes, it can be used to vis *results*
of data mining and statistics.  Now, if you're asking if VTK *performs* data
mining and stats, the answer is mostly no (though you could do something with
vtkMath, I guess).  Regarding examples, well, I can say that I've used MATLAB
for a data-mining-like algorithm and then vis'd results using VTK:


But again, VTK could have cared less how the data was generated.

I'm interested in the topic of (scientific) data mining/stats, so if others
find novel ways of incorporating VTK, pls let me know.
