 Geomview
within Mathematica Tutorial by Pau Atela, Smith College
 Completely different from the rather terse GC one: many pictures,
lots of exposition.
Programs that use Geomview for output
SaVi, by Lloyd Wood
and Patrick Worfolk, The Geometry Center.
Satellite orbit and constellation visualization program.
The Orrery by Stuart Levy, The Geometry Center
A Geomview module that simulates the Solar System.
Maniview by Charlie Gunn, The Geometry Center
A Geomview module for studying the geometry and topology of 3manifolds.
StageTools
A Geomview module that creates mathematical objects and scripts demonstrations.
Surface
Evolver by Ken Brakke, The Geometry Center/Susquehanna
Differential geometry software: models
surfaces shaped by constraints. Uses Geomview for output.
Qhull by
Brad Barber, The Geometry Center
Robust convex hull computation. Uses Geomview for output.
CGAL, part of the GALIA project
CGAL is a very polished library of geometric algorithms
Bidirectional communication support for Geomview is built in to
CGAL
CATHI
System by Andreas Butz, University of Saarbrücken
Animation script generator, output in Geomview or Renderman format.
OOGL
models, lots of big and complicated things
QMG:
mesh generation software by Steve Vavasis, Cornell
Can use Geomview for output.
See bottom of example page
Polymake
from the Technical University of Berlin
Tool for the algorithmic treatment of polytops and polyhedra. Can use Geomview for output.
TetraView,
an external module by Mauricio Palma Lizana, University of Chile
See picture.
Tessel
by Victor Luana, Universidad de Oviedo
Creates crystal and molecular models, parametric surfaces and several
forms of sphere tesselations. Can use Geomview (or POVray or VRML)
for output.
Picture gallery includes a few Geomview cameos.
UMass GANG
Geomview modules
Hyperman
for viewing surfaces in R^4. It features two mouse control paradigms,
stereoscopic viewing, control under a general reference frame, general
eye separations, and fourdimensional perspective.
Conformal
Viewer for viewing surfaces in S4. The 15dimensional space of
conformal motions, implemented as quaternionic fractional linear
transformations of HP1, are bound to four mouspads representing
translations, rotations, homotheties and inversions.
Geomwidget for
a variety of geometryspecific features including coloring surfaces by
Gaussian curvature, mean curvature, and normal direction, cutting away
and flowing through surface slices, coloring boundaries and reflecting
in symmetry planes
Wulffman:
An Interactive Crystal Shape Constructor by Andy Roosen et al, NIST
A program for interactively examining the Wulff shapes of
crystals with specified symmetries, uses Geomview for output.
Measure: A
Polytop Analysis Tool by Andy Roosen, NIST
A program for interactively examining the geometrical properties
of polyhedra that are being viewed with Geomview. A user can determine
the area of facets, the length of edges, the coordinates of a vertex
(or point), and the distance between points.
DSTool from Cornell
Numerical simulation of dynamical systems, uses Geomview for
output in dimension 3 or higher.
