About Voreen

Voreenve-2.pngVoreen is an open source rapid application development framework for the interactive visualization and analysis of multi-modal volumetric data sets. It provides GPU-based volume rendering and data analysis techniques and offers high flexibility when developing new analysis workflows in collaboration with domain experts. The Voreen framework consists of a multi-platform C++ library, which can be easily integrated into existing applications, and a Qt-based stand-alone application. It is licensed under the terms of the GNU General Public License.

The Voreen project has been initiated and was originally maintained by the Visualization & Computer Graphics Research Group at the University of Münster as part of the collaborative research center SFB 656 MoBil (Project Z1, Project Ö).

Since 2018, Voreen is collaboratively developed by the Pattern Recognition and Image Analysis (PRIA) Research Group and the VISualization & graphIX (VISIX) Research Group.
