Surface Vectors Filter in ParaView
Surface Vectors Filter in ParaView

The Surface Vectors filter uses the VTK filter vtkSurfaceVectors. The filter works for 2-D data sets. The filter constrains vectors to lie on a surface for the active data set. It does this by removing components of the vectors normal to the surface.

  1. First the user selects the data they wish to operate on from the Selection Window. It will be highlighted when this occurs.
  2. The user can then select Filter->Alphabetical->Surface Vectors from the main menu.
  3. The Select Input Vectors menu allows the user to select among vectors in the input data set.
  4. The Constraint Mode menu allows the user to select among parallel, perpendicular, or perpendicular scale.
  5. The Apply button must be pressed before the Outline will be generated.
