Based on the VTK library and written in Java, Cassandra is open source software of 3D visualization and scientific data, employed in particular for the post-processing of calculated results. Cassandra is architected in the form of a framework in which data processing (filters) is accomplished via independent plug-ins and can be dynamically loaded.
Cassandra offers a graphic editor of visualization pipelines, facilitating the definition of processing sequences and a JyConsole, allowing the direct manipulation of VTK objects by Jython scripts. Non-specialists can thus implement all the possibilities offered by VTK easily and quickly.
Adaptable and modular Cassandra can therefore be easily personalized according to the needs of each domain of application and offer great functional evolution capabilities.
As an open source project software, Cassandra has a track record of a strong community of users and has been an integral part of several national research projects (ANR), like project Collaviz, a distributed and collaborative platform for scientific visualization.
In this frame, a client-server version and parallel processing engine, Cassandra-PCS, was developed. Based on the technology ProActive from INRIA, Cassandra-PCS offers processing capacity for large databases and a simplified deployment in high performance clusters.
In the frame of the SPIS project and as post-processing module, Cassandra is integrated in the IME Keridwen. Cassandra is used to visualize data of space environment simulations.
Along with Cassandra, Artenum offers:
- a dual licensing mechanism, allowing the integration of Artenum's solutions in all types of programs, including proprietary ones.
- an offer of support and services ranging from training to consulting, by way of custom development.
