Example and Test Data

VisIt comes preinstalled with a small set of example Silo files that you can plot to familiarize yourself with using VisIt. VisIt can read and process data from many different file formats. In addition, we have a lot of example data we use in our nightly testing.

This page provides a few links to other sites where you can download data in some of the other file formats that VisIt supports.

If you want to know how to create data files that VisIt can read, please read the Getting Data Into VisIt manual or read about how to develop a new database plugin.

If you want us to add a link to your data here, please contact us.
