5. Further Reading

Thank you for participating in this tutorial. Hopefully you have learned enough to get you started visualizing large data with ParaView. Here are some sources for further reading.

The documentation page on ParaView’s web site contains a list of resources available for further learning and questions: https://www.paraview.org/documentation .

The ParaView User’s Guide is a good resource to have with ParaView. It provides many other instructions and more detailed descriptions on many features. The ParaView guide can be accessed from the ParaView documentation page.

The ParaView Wiki is full of information that you can use to help you set up and use ParaView: https://www.paraview.org/Wiki/ParaView.

In particular, those of you who wish to install a parallel ParaView server should consult the appropriate build and install pages: https://www.paraview.org/Wiki/Setting_up_a_ParaView_Server .

If you are interested in learning more about visualization or more specifics about the filters available in ParaView, consider picking up the following visualization textbook: [SML06].

If you plan on customizing ParaView, the previous books and web pages have lots of information. For more information about using VTK, the underlying visualization library, and Qt, the GUI library, consider the following books have more information: [KInc10], [BS08].

If you are interested about the design of parallel visualization and other features of the VTK pipeline, there are several technical papers available: [Mor13], [ALS+00], [ABM+01], [CGM+06], [ADM+07], [BGM+07].

If you are interested in the algorithms and architecture for ParaView’s parallel rendering, there are also many technical articles on this as well: [MWP01], [MT03], [MAF07].
