RE: Voxel-geometry in shades of grey

Hi Manuel,

in principle you could try to visualize your voxels with the DaVis3D
plugin of SimpleGeo ( It can read a very
simple XYZ-voxel format (see the manual) and you can interactively
create sections of your data as shown in the attachment with a voxel
phantom. In addition you can use some of the pre-defined color tables
which would for example highlight certain voxel values as shown in the
attachment. Another way to localize areas is to use the contour function
which will emphasize the contours of areas above/below a user defined threshold.
