Hi,

Forgive me if my question sounds silly but I would like to understand something well.

I have a 2D velocity field and I want to show better what happens exactly in the flow by using Paraview. Applying the “Glyph” filter and scaling it with respect to “vector” looks really good, but I can’t seem to find anywhere an official confirmation what mathematical quantity exactly “glyphs” represent. In some sense the idea they give is similar to the concept of streamlines, but that is a different filter as I understand. The “glyph arrows” simply represent the 2D velocity vectors in each point?

Thank you so much!

Nora
