Gpiv-tools is a package that contains command-line driven programs for the so-called (Digital) Particle Image Velocimetry technique (PIV). The programs perform image evaluation, resulting into a velocity field of the flow, validation programs and post-processing programs to manipulate the data or to extract information from the data (statistics, derivatives). There are some additional programs and scripts for data and image format conversions, chain-processing, batch-processing and for generating graphical output. Though the command-line driven tools are mainly intended for non-graphic processing, its outputs may be visualized in a graphical way by displaying with the aid of gnuplot.
