sound as if vtkPlaneSource is exactly what you are looking for.

use SetResolution(...) to specify the reslution along the axis.
the source object will then create a vtkPolyData object which can be used as a source for the streamlining ...

Subject: [vtkusers] Genretainr Streamlines from a plane

Hi all, 

I am trying to generate streamlines from a 2-D plane using vtkStreamLines. 
I want to be able to specify the no. of lines along either axis. 
I couldnt find any class in vtk documentation that would serve the purpose, 
the vtkPlane Source generates number of smaller planes form the given plane 
while vtkPointSource generates the points randomly in a spherical region about a center 

Is there any class in VTK which can generate points on a plane or do i need to implement the functionality using my code.
