VTK - The Visualization Toolkit

Introduction

VTK is an open-source software system for image processing, 3D graphics, volume rendering and visualization. VTK includes many advanced algorithms (e.g., surface reconstruction, implicit modeling, decimation) and rendering techniques (e.g., hardware-accelerated volume rendering, LOD control).

VTK is used by academicians for teaching and research; by government research institutions such as Los Alamos National Lab in the US or CINECA in Italy; and by many commercial firms who use VTK to build or extend products.

The origin of VTK is with the textbook "The Visualization Toolkit, an Object-Oriented Approach to 3D Graphics" originally published by Prentice Hall and now published by Kitware, Inc. (Third Edition ISBN 1-930934-07-6). VTK has grown (since its initial release in 1994) to a world-wide user base in the commercial, academic, and research communities.

Learning Resources

  • General information is available at the VTK Homepage.

  • Community discussion takes place on the VTK Discourse forum.

  • Commercial support and training are available from Kitware.

  • Doxygen-generated nightly reference documentation is available online.

  • There is now a large collection of VTK Examples that showcase VTK features and provide a useful learning resource.

Reporting Bugs

If you have found a bug:

  1. If you have a patch, please read the CONTRIBUTING.md document.

  2. Otherwise, please join the VTK Discourse forum and ask about the expected and observed behaviors to determine if it is really a bug.

  3. Finally, if the issue is not resolved by the above steps, open an entry in the VTK Issue Tracker.
