Khoros is a software integration and development environment that emphasizes information processing and data exploration. The goal of the Khoros software is to provide a complete application development environment that redefines the software engineering process to include all members of the project group, from the application end-user to the infrastructure programmer. Khoros is a comprehensive system that may be viewed in different ways, depending on your scientific needs and objectives. For those who need end user solutions to scientific problems, Khoros may be used as it stands, providing a rich set of programs for information processing , data exploration, and data visualization. Multidimensional data manipulation operators include pointwise arithmetic, statistic calculations, data conversions, histograms, data organization, and size operators; image processing routines and matrix manipulation are also provided. Interactive data visualization programs include an image display and manipulation package, an animation program, a 2D/3D plotting package, a colormap alteration tool, and an interactive image/signal classification application. In addition, 3D visualization capabilities are also offered; a number of data processing routines for 3D visualization are provided, along with a software rendering application. The Khoros operators are generalized, such that each can solve problems in a variety of specific areas such as medical imaging, remote sensing, process control, signal processing, and numerical analysis.
All information processing and visualization programs in Khoros are available via the visual programming environment, Cantata. Cantata is a graphically expressed, event-driven, data flow visual language which provides a visual programming environment within the Khoros system. Data flow is a "naturally visible" approach in which a visual program is described as directed graph, where each node represents an operator or function and each directed arc represents a path over which data flows. By providing a natural environment which is similar to the block diagrams that are already familiar to practitioners in the field, the visual language provides support to both novice and experienced programmers. Cantata supports coarse grain distributed processes; it can handle both stream and block data. Its visual hierarchy, iteration, flow control, and expression-based parameters make it a powerful simulation and prototyping system.
For application developers, the Khoros Toolbox Programmer's system consists of programming services and software development tools that support all aspects of developing new engineering and scientific applications. Applications written to Khoros can take advantage of the same capabilities offered by the Khoros data processing and visualization routines, including the ability to transparently access large data sets distributed across a network, operate on a variety of data and file formats without conversion, simultaneously support different widget sets, and maintain a consistent presentation with a standardized user interface and documentation, and interactive configuration management. The Khoros software development system can also be used for software integration, where existing programs can be brought together into a consistent, standardized and cohesive environment.
Khoros provides a powerful working environment for the engineering and scientific communities, addressing many of the issues associated with quickly developing X Window based applications, prototyping solutions to complex problems, and utilizing the resources of a distributed network. The layered approach of the Khoros infrastructure, and the concept of program services provide developers with the flexibility to create complex applications, while at the same time hiding the intimidating details of operating systems and X Window systems.
A common misperception is that there is a single application named "Khoros." In fact, "Khoros" is the name referring to hundreds of programs and thousands of library calls available in several discrete sets which are referred to as "toolboxes." Khoros is a complete data exploration and software development environment that reduces time in solving complex problems, allows free sharing of ideas and information, and promotes portability.From the Back Cover:
