property to select the array association and array name. Use
**ElementId* property to set the element number to extract the value to
label with. When running on multiple ranks, use **ProcessId** property
to select the rank of interest. The **Prefix** property can be used to

==Annotate Global Data==
 
Filter for annotating with global data (designed for ExodusII reader)
Annotate Global Data provides a simpler API for creating text
annotations using vtkPythonAnnotationFilter. Instead of users
specifying the annotation expression, this filter determines the
expression based on the array selected by limiting the scope of the
functionality. This filter only allows the user to annotate using
"global-data" aka field data and specify the string prefix to use. If
the field array chosen has as many elements as number of timesteps,
the array is assumed to be "temporal" and indexed using the current
timestep.

==Append Attributes==
 
Copies geometry from first input. Puts all of the arrays into the output.
The Append Attributes filter takes multiple input data
sets with the same geometry and merges their point and
cell attributes to produce a single output containing all
the point and cell attributes of the inputs. Any inputs
without the same number of points and cells as the first
input are ignored. The input data sets must already be
collected together, either as a result of a reader that
loads multiple parts (e.g., EnSight reader) or because the
Group Parts filter has been run to form a collection of
data sets.

Datasets filter operates on multiple data sets of any type
(polygonal, structured, etc.). It merges their geometry
into a single data set. Only the point and cell attributes
that all of the input data sets have in common will appear
in the output. The input data sets must already be
collected together, either as a result of a reader that

==Calculator==
 
Compute new attribute arrays as function of existing arrays.
The Calculator filter computes a new data array or new point
coordinates as a function of existing scalar or vector arrays. If
point-centered arrays are used in the computation of a new data array,
the resulting array will also be point-centered. Similarly,
computations using cell-centered arrays will produce a new
cell-centered array. If the function is computing point coordinates,
the result of the function must be a three-component vector.
 
The Calculator interface operates similarly to a scientific
calculator. In creating the function to evaluate, the standard order
of operations applies. Each of the calculator functions is described
below. Unless otherwise noted, enclose the operand in parentheses
using the ( and ) buttons.
 
- Clear: Erase the current function (displayed in the read-only text
box above the calculator buttons).
- /: Divide one scalar by another. The operands for this function are
not required to be enclosed in parentheses.
- *: Multiply two scalars, or multiply a vector by a scalar (scalar multiple).
The operands for this function are not required to be enclosed in parentheses.
- -: Negate a scalar or vector (unary minus), or subtract one scalar or vector
from another. The operands for this function are not required to be enclosed
in parentheses.
- +: Add two scalars or two vectors. The operands for this function are not
required to be enclosed in parentheses.
- sin: Compute the sine of a scalar. cos: Compute the cosine of a scalar.
- tan: Compute the tangent of a scalar.
- asin: Compute the arcsine of a scalar.
- acos: Compute the arccosine of a scalar.
- atan: Compute the arctangent of a scalar.
- sinh: Compute the hyperbolic sine of a scalar.
- cosh: Compute the hyperbolic cosine of a scalar.
- tanh: Compute the hyperbolic tangent of a scalar.
- min: Compute minimum of two scalars.
- max: Compute maximum of two scalars.
- x^y: Raise one scalar to the power of another scalar. The operands for
this function are not required to be enclosed in parentheses.
- sqrt: Compute the square root of a scalar.
- e^x: Raise e to the power of a scalar.
- log: Compute the logarithm of a scalar (deprecated. same as log10).
- log10: Compute the logarithm of a scalar to the base 10.
- ln: Compute the logarithm of a scalar to the base 'e'.
- ceil: Compute the ceiling of a scalar. floor: Compute the floor of a scalar.
- abs: Compute the absolute value of a scalar.
- v1.v2: Compute the dot product of two vectors. The operands for this
function are not required to be enclosed in parentheses.
- cross: Compute cross product of two vectors.
- mag: Compute the magnitude of a vector.
- norm: Normalize a vector.
 
The operands are described below. The digits 0 - 9 and the decimal
point are used to enter constant scalar values. **iHat**, **jHat**,
and **kHat** are vector constants representing unit vectors in the X,
Y, and Z directions, respectively. The scalars menu lists the names of
the scalar arrays and the components of the vector arrays of either
the point-centered or cell-centered data. The vectors menu lists the
names of the point-centered or cell-centered vector arrays. The
function will be computed for each point (or cell) using the scalar or
vector value of the array at that point (or cell). The filter operates
on any type of data set, but the input data set must have at least one
scalar or vector array. The arrays can be either point-centered or
cell-centered. The Calculator filter's output is of the same data set
type as the input.

==Cell Centers==
 
Create a point (no geometry) at the center of each input cell.The Cell Centers
filter places a point at the center of each cell in the
input data set. The center computed is the parametric
center of the cell, not necessarily the geometric or
bounding box center. The cell attributes of the input will
be associated with these newly created points of the
output. You have the option of creating a vertex cell per
point in the outpuut. This is useful because vertex cells
are rendered, but points are not. The points themselves
could be used for placing glyphs (using the Glyph filter).
The Cell Centers filter takes any type of data set as
input and produces a polygonal data set as
output.

attributes of the cells surrounding a point to compute
point attributes. The Cell Data to Point Data filter
operates on any type of data set, and the output data set
is of the same type as the input.

==Clip Generic Dataset==
 
Clip with an implicit plane, sphere or with scalars. Clipping does not reduce the dimensionality of the data set. This output data type of this filter is always an unstructured grid.
The Generic Clip filter cuts away a portion of the input
data set using a plane, a sphere, a box, or a scalar
value. The menu in the Clip Function portion of the
interface allows the user to select which implicit
function to use or whether to clip using a scalar value.
Making this selection loads the appropriate user
interface. For the implicit functions, the appropriate 3D
widget (plane, sphere, or box) is also displayed. The use
of these 3D widgets, including their user interface
components, is discussed in section 7.4. If an implicit
function is selected, the clip filter returns that portion
of the input data set that lies inside the function. If
Scalars is selected, then the user must specify a scalar
array to clip according to. The clip filter will return
the portions of the data set whose value in the selected
Scalars array is larger than the Clip value. Regardless of
the selection from the Clip Function menu, if the Inside
Out option is checked, the opposite portions of the data
set will be returned. This filter operates on all types of
data sets, and it returns unstructured grid data on
output.

==Contour Generic Dataset==
 
Generate isolines or isosurfaces using point scalars.The Generic
Contour filter computes isolines or isosurfaces using a
selected point-centered scalar array. The available scalar
arrays are listed in the Scalars menu. The scalar range of
the selected array will be displayed. The interface for
adding contour values is very similar to the one for
selecting cut offsets (in the Cut filter). To add a single
contour value, select the value from the New Value slider
in the Add value portion of the interface and click the
Add button, or press Enter. To instead add several evenly
spaced contours, use the controls in the Generate range of
values section. Select the number of contour values to
generate using the Number of Values slider. The Range
slider controls the interval in which to generate the
contour values. Once the number of values and range have
been selected, click the Generate button. The new values
will be added to the Contour Values list. To delete a
value from the Contour Values list, select the value and
click the Delete button. (If no value is selected, the
last value in the list will be removed.) Clicking the
Delete All button removes all the values in the list. If
no values are in the Contour Values list when Accept is
pressed, the current value of the New Value slider will be
used. In addition to selecting contour values, you can
also select additional computations to perform. If any of
Compute Normals, Compute Gradients, or Compute Scalars is
selected, the appropriate computation will be performed,
and a corresponding point-centered array will be added to
the output. The Generic Contour filter operates on a
generic data set, but the input is required to have at
least one point-centered scalar (single-component) array.
The output of this filter is polygonal.

==Delaunay 2D==
 
Create 2D Delaunay triangulation of input points. It expects a vtkPointSet as input and produces vtkPolyData as output. The points are expected to be in a mostly planar distribution.
Delaunay2D is a filter that constructs a 2D Delaunay
triangulation from a list of input points. These points
may be represented by any dataset of type vtkPointSet and
subclasses. The output of the filter is a polygonal
dataset containing a triangle mesh. The 2D Delaunay
triangulation is defined as the triangulation that
satisfies the Delaunay criterion for n-dimensional
simplexes (in this case n=2 and the simplexes are
triangles). This criterion states that a circumsphere of
each simplex in a triangulation contains only the n+1
defining points of the simplex. In two dimensions, this
translates into an optimal triangulation. That is, the
maximum interior angle of any triangle is less than or
equal to that of any possible triangulation. Delaunay
triangulations are used to build topological structures
from unorganized (or unstructured) points. The input to
this filter is a list of points specified in 3D, even
though the triangulation is 2D. Thus the triangulation is
constructed in the x-y plane, and the z coordinate is
ignored (although carried through to the output). You can
use the option ProjectionPlaneMode in order to compute the
best-fitting plane to the set of points, project the
points and that plane and then perform the triangulation
using their projected positions and then use it as the
plane in which the triangulation is performed. The
Delaunay triangulation can be numerically sensitive in
some cases. To prevent problems, try to avoid injecting
points that will result in triangles with bad aspect
ratios (1000:1 or greater). In practice this means
inserting points that are "widely dispersed", and enables
smooth transition of triangle sizes throughout the mesh.
(You may even want to add extra points to create a better
point distribution.) If numerical problems are present,
you will see a warning message to this effect at the end
of the triangulation process. Warning: Points arranged on
a regular lattice (termed degenerate cases) can be
triangulated in more than one way (at least according to
the Delaunay criterion). The choice of triangulation (as
implemented by this algorithm) depends on the order of the
input points. The first three points will form a triangle;
other degenerate points will not break this triangle.
Points that are coincident (or nearly so) may be discarded
by the algorithm. This is because the Delaunay
triangulation requires unique input points. The output of
the Delaunay triangulation is supposedly a convex hull. In
certain cases this implementation may not generate the
convex hull.

==Delaunay 3D==
 
Create a 3D Delaunay triangulation of input points. It expects a vtkPointSet as input and produces vtkUnstructuredGrid as output.Delaunay3D is a filter that constructs
a 3D Delaunay triangulation from a list of input points. These points may be
represented by any dataset of type vtkPointSet and subclasses. The output of
the filter is an unstructured grid dataset. Usually the output is a tetrahedral
mesh, but if a non-zero alpha distance value is specified (called the "alpha"
value), then only tetrahedra, triangles, edges, and vertices lying within the
alpha radius are output. In other words, non-zero alpha values may result in
arbitrary combinations of tetrahedra, triangles, lines, and vertices. (The
notion of alpha value is derived from Edelsbrunner's work on "alpha shapes".)
The 3D Delaunay triangulation is defined as the triangulation that satisfies
the Delaunay criterion for n-dimensional simplexes (in this case n=3 and the
simplexes are tetrahedra). This criterion states that a circumsphere of each
simplex in a triangulation contains only the n+1 defining points of the
simplex. (See text for more information.) While in two dimensions this
translates into an "optimal" triangulation, this is not true in 3D, since a
measurement for optimality in 3D is not agreed on. Delaunay triangulations are
used to build topological structures from unorganized (or unstructured) points.
The input to this filter is a list of points specified in 3D. (If you wish to
create 2D triangulations see Delaunay2D.) The output is an unstructured grid.
The Delaunay triangulation can be numerically sensitive. To prevent problems,
try to avoid injecting points that will result in triangles with bad aspect
ratios (1000:1 or greater). In practice this means inserting points that are
"widely dispersed", and enables smooth transition of triangle sizes throughout
the mesh. (You may even want to add extra points to create a better point
distribution.) If numerical problems are present, you will see a warning
message to this effect at the end of the triangulation process. Warning: Points
arranged on a regular lattice (termed degenerate cases) can be triangulated in
more than one way (at least according to the Delaunay criterion). The choice of
triangulation (as implemented by this algorithm) depends on the order of the
input points. The first four points will form a tetrahedron; other degenerate
points (relative to this initial tetrahedron) will not break it. Points that
are coincident (or nearly so) may be discarded by the algorithm. This is
because the Delaunay triangulation requires unique input points. You can
control the definition of coincidence with the "Tolerance" instance variable.
The output of the Delaunay triangulation is supposedly a convex hull. In
certain cases this implementation may not generate the convex hull. This
behavior can be controlled by the Offset instance variable. Offset is a
multiplier used to control the size of the initial triangulation. The larger
the offset value, the more likely you will generate a convex hull; and the more
likely you are to see numerical problems. The implementation of this algorithm
varies from the 2D Delaunay algorithm (i.e., Delaunay2D) in an important way.
When points are injected into the triangulation, the search for the enclosing
tetrahedron is quite different. In the 3D case, the closest previously inserted
point point is found, and then the connected tetrahedra are searched to find
the containing one. (In 2D, a "walk" towards the enclosing triangle is
performed.) If the triangulation is Delaunay, then an enclosing tetrahedron
will be found. However, in degenerate cases an enclosing tetrahedron may not be
found and the point will be rejected.

==Descriptive Statistics==
 
Compute a statistical model of a dataset and/or assess the dataset with a statistical model.
This filter either computes a statistical model of a dataset or takes

This filter computes the min, max, mean, raw moments M2 through M4,
standard deviation, skewness, and kurtosis for each array you
select.<p> The model is simply a univariate Gaussian distribution
with the mean and standard deviation provided. Data is assessed using
this model by detrending the data (i.e., subtracting the mean) and then
dividing by the standard deviation. Thus the assessment is an array whose
entries are the number of standard deviations from the mean that each
input point lies.

==Generate Surface Normals==
 
This filter will produce surface normals used for smooth shading. Splitting is used to avoid smoothing across feature edges.This filter
generates surface normals at the points of the input
polygonal dataset to provide smooth shading of the
dataset. The resulting dataset is also polygonal. The
filter works by calculating a normal vector for each
polygon in the dataset and then averaging the normals at
the shared points.
