VHTK v1.2 (Volume Haptics Toolkit) is a collection of OpenGL API-based nodes and tools for haptic visualisation and exploration of volumetric data using the H3D API and the OpenGL API. It provides a range of different haptic representations of volumetric scalar an vector data for better understanding of the scientific data. VHTK makes extensive use of the OpenGL API and extensions to provide visual rendering of 3D volume data. V1.2 provides new visualization functionalities, an extended list of transfer functions and a new haptic mode for prototyping and guidance.
