What is VIGIE ?
VIGIE (Visualisation Generale Interactive d'Ecoulements) is a software
developped at INRIA for comparing the
numerical results of simulations in the framework of workshops about hypersonic
speed simulation and magnetic filed simulations. The software features
powerful tools for the visualisation of numerical results in 1-D, 2-D and
3-D. VIGIE has been developed using X11 and Motif and run under most unices.
Here are some screenshots to demonstrate the main features of VIGIE:
The latest version is 1.9.1 and is only available on Linux and Solaris. The
source code is also available.

Vigie support :
- HHDB format, the documentation for HHDB is available on the
HHSFD server (login as guest, then click on
"The HHDB solution output format."). This site also contain some example programs to
write HHDB format files.
- HDB format
- private colormap [flag -installcm]
Binaries for the following architectures are available free of charge
from our anonymous ftp
server. Here are some direct links to install the software in a few
- Download the executable software for your architecture:
- Download the X11 resource file [ASCII file]
and place it in your X11 resource directory
- Download the example data set of the manual [compressed
- For a tutorial either download and print, or follow the browsable documentation
We also provide two useful programs which can help you to check the
format of your data files.
check a file in HDB format (mesh and values on the mesh)
check a file in HHDB format (mesh and values on the mesh)
a template for writing meshes for the EEDB databse
The VIGIE User Guide has been fully rewritten and is available
on-line. It provides a full description of the sofware written as a tutorial,
as well as the description of the data formats known to vigie. This manual
is available in 2 formats:
A simplified local version of this documentation is available locally.
Before asking a question it may be a good idea to read the online FAQ.
