OpenGL and Data Visualization


I am looking for a way to make calls to a math library in order to visualize a high dimensional dataset. I want to create my own visualizations and I would like them to look something like Plotly.

I am wondering if there is some API that I can use to generate plots that OpenGL understands. For example, typically the gaussian distribution is plotted on a straight line, but I would like to use a mathematics/visualization library/api to generate a basic gaussian curve then use my own OpenGL code to project it onto the upper half of a circle.

Does a data visualization library exist that works well with OpenGL? I can start from scratch, but I would love to see what other people have done before me to create their own interesting data visualizations, I just need to be able to see the code.


Google Terrain Generation, it’s probably what you are looking for.
