CISM_DX is a community-developed suite of integrated data, models, and data and model explorers, for research and education. The data and model explorers are based on code written for OpenDX and Octave.

CISM_DX leverages and integrates many existing software packages. To use it, some study knowledge of OpenDX and/or Octave is involved. However, there are many things you can do without having to be familiar with Octave or OpenDX.
