Visit is a free interactive parallel visualization and graphical analysis tool for viewing scientific data on Unix and PC platforms. It was developed by the Department of Energy (DOE) Advanced Simulation and Computing Initiative (ASCI) to visualize and analyze the results of terascale simulations. It is supported by Lawrence Livermore National Laboratories. Visit has a data file format specifically for reading in Flash2 and Flash3 datasets; start visit with the command line

Plugins for VisIT
Two plugins have been developed to assist FLASH users. Installation documentation is available in the tarballs provided below. The first plugin for Visit is available to enable compatibility with the dataset format used as of the Flash3 release. The second plugin ensures that Visit can read datasets which may have inconsistently capitalized variable names.
