Why VES?

The Visualization Toolkit (VTK) is used by desktop application developers to power many leading scientific and medical research tools. VTK is composed of many different modules including I/O, data processing, statistical analysis, networking, and rendering. These modules are very useful for mobile application development, but the rendering module is not written for OpenGL ES 2.0. VES offers an OpenGL ES 2.0 based rendering library that integrates with the rest of VTK, allowing mobile developers to take full advantage of the Visualization Toolkit.
