PTM particle trace

At a glance

  • Visualize particle/path data
  • Supports PTM model which computes particle positions through time based upon hydrodynamics and wave effects


The particle module contains tools used to work with particle data. Particles can have time varying location and scalar data. The particle module currently includes interfaces for:

  • PTM – Lagrangian particle tracker designed to allow the user to simulate particle transport processes.


Particle Module Tools

The Particle Module tools are contained in the Dynamic Tools portion of the tool palette when the Particle Module is active.

The Select Particles tool selects a single particle with a left mouse click. A group of particles can be selected by dragging a box around them. Particles may be added to the selection by holding the SHIFT key and selecting additional particles. The main use of selecting particles in the particle module is to query the particle properties. When a single particle is selected, the Info Window will show the ID and the edit window will show the location and value of the active particle dataset. If exactly two particles are selected, the Info Window will also show the exact distance between the two selected particles. If more than one particle is selected, the minimum, maximum, and average value of the active particle dataset will be shown.
