'LIBGPIV' is a library for the (Digital) Particle Image Velocimetry technique (PIV), an image analyzing technology that obtains a velocity field from a fluid flow (gas or liquid) that has been seeded with small tracer particles or smoke. 'LIBGPIV' contains the core functions for image evaluation (resulting into estimators of particle image displacements, i.e. PIV data), validation (on peak-locking effects, erroneous vectors or outliers), post-processing, input/output functions, utility functions like memory allocation etc. The project is designed for maximum flexibility for extending and adapting the code for different applications.
