What is ViEWER?

ViEWER is a Virtual Environment Workbench for Education and Research.

ViEWER is Microsoft Windows application built upon the ViEWER library .    ViEWER allows anyone with basic computer skills (i.e. able to use Windows applications) to develop virtual displays for a variety of research applications.

ViEWER 2.25 currently supports these functions:
