GINO Editions



2D and 3D Core-graphics Toolkit

GINO-F is a programmable toolkit providing over 450 routines and functions for developing professional 2D and 3D graphics applications. The library includes functionality from basic line drawing, fonts, polygons and images to full 3D OpenGL features such as facets, bezier surfaces, lighting, shading and texture-mapping. Metafile input/output includes DXF, JPEG, PNG, ICO, BMP, CGM, Postscript and WMF.

Used in conjunction with the interactive and GUI features of GINOMENU, GINO-F can produce powerful professional-looking applications.

Simple line drawing, 3D Wireframe, 3D Lighting and Shading, Image Handling, Interaction, Segment Handling, Animation Export plots, print etc.


2D Technical Data Display for Line Graphs, Charts, Histograms

GINOGRAF is a set of functions for displaying 2D numerical data in a range of graphical forms and to enhance users data display needs with the minimum of programming effort.

Extruded Bar charts, pie charts, X-Y graphs, vector diagrams, histograms, step, area, text and polar charts can all be generated from a single call. Alternatively, a whole host of composite routines are available which offer further control of position, scaling and labelling of axes, line styles and symbol types, curve fitting characteristics, colour and solid fill capabilities, linear and logarithmic scales and titling.

Used in conjunction with the interactive and GUI features of GINOMENU can produce a powerful application for your demanding data-driven needs.


The 3D/4D Data Display Library for Contouring, Surface Mapping & X-Sections

GINOSURF is a multi-dimensional graphical display library providing a variety of surface representations. Contour plots, perspective surfaces and cross-sectional diagrams can all be generated to perform accurate visual appraisal of your multi-dimensional data. This impressive and high performance surface mapping can all be created with a minimum of programming effort.

Data sources include 3D or 4D, random or gridded datasets which are interpolated onto a gridded or triangulated network with full programmable interpolation control. Pre-triangulated data can also be input from FE triangulated datasets and DXF Polyface surface metafiles. Control routines provide full colour control, scaling, direction of viewing, character and annotation control, projection of contour slices, area fill of specified data regions, axis control and full hidden surface facilities.


GUI Library

GINOMENU is a Fortran subroutine toolkit for developing GUI applications under Windows. It provides extensive window and widget building modules allowing professional user-interfaces to be created under Windows  without the need to get involved in MFC, API or mixed-language programming.

Optional high level graphics facilities featured in the other GINO modules can be fully utilized to provide a complete graphics development environment for any application.

GINOMENU is unique in not only providing the features of the Windows API to the Fortran programmer but also making it extremely easy to use; no knowledge of system event loops or window handles is required and a basic program containing a simple window can be created with less than 15 lines of code!

The extensive functionality, ease-of-use and flexibility of GINOMENU and GINO, provide the programmer with a powerful development toolkit for generating a fully portable graphical display system.
