What is OpenPTV
OpenPTV foundation is a collaborative effort of several research groups to join in order to develop a better software for three-dimensional Lagrangian particle tracking velocimetry.
OpenPTV is standing on the shoulders of giants. The origins are from the 3D-PTV software, developed for years at ETH Zurich. Since then few additional branches of the software have been developed independently by TU/e group of Turbulence and Vortex Dynamics (C++ version with Tcl/Tk and few new algorithms of general coordinate transformation) and by the Turbulence Structure Laboratory at Tel Aviv University (Python version, PyPTV).
Kick-off meeting in Tel Aviv, April 29 - May 3, 2013
Software repository on Github
