f-w is on a distinguished road

I'm doing aero analysis on a shape in Star-CCM+. I will soon have experimental pressure readings at over 100 locations on that shape.

Has anyone come across any software which can manage pressure data from different sources and map them (create contour plots or color the distribution) on CAD geometry (IGES/STEP/Parasolid) given x,y,z locations of pressure taps?

I haven't found a way to do it all in Star-CCM+ yet, and I wouldn't want to do it manually, since this will need to be done for multiple conditions, so I thought I'd ask if there's something (preferably freeware) that does this already.
