OpenPIV consists in a Python and Cython modules for scripting and executing the analysis of a set of PIV image pairs. In addition, a Qt and Tk graphical user interfaces are in development, to ease the use for those users who don't have python skills.


The OpenPIV python version is still in its beta state. This means that it still might have some bugs and the API may change. However, testing and contributing is very welcome, especially if you can contribute with new algorithms and features.
