Avizo (pronounce: ‘a-VEE-zo’) is a general-purpose commercial software application for scientific and industrial data visualization and analysis.

Avizo is developed by VSG - Visualization Sciences Group and was originally designed and developed by the Visualization and Data Analysis Group at Zuse-Institute Berlin (ZIB) under the name amira®. Avizo was commercially released in November 2007.

Overview

Avizo Graphical user interface

Avizo is a software application which enables users to perform interactive visualization and computation on 3D data sets. The Avizo interface is modelled on the visual programming. Users manipulate data and module components, organized in an interactive graph representation (called Pool), or in a Tree view. Data and modules can be interactively connected together, and controled with several parameters, creating a visual processing network whose output is displayed in a 3D viewer.

With this interface, complex data can be interactively explored and analyzed by applying a controlled sequence of computation and display processes resulting into a meaningful visual representation and associated derived data.

Features

Data Import:

Peabody, Massachusetts)

2D / 3D Data Visualization:

Image Processing:

  • 2D/3D Alignment of image slices, Image registration
  • Image filtering
  • Mathematical Morphology (erode, dilate, open, close, tophat)
  • Watershed Transform, Distance Transform
  • Image segmentation

3D Models Reconstruction:

  • Polygonal surface generation from segmented objects
  • Generation of Tetrahedral Grids
