Any way to extract data from contour plots using paraView?
 
Hi all,

I have a newbie question about how to extract x, y coordinates of interpolation points on a contour and their interpolated field values by using paraView?

Thanks.

after contour
choose : Filters -> Data analysis -> integrate Variables

then a new window will open, then in "showing" tab , choose "contour"

if you want to save data in ".csv" you can choose : file -> save data

I have also exported my contour data and the export seems fine. However, I plan to plot the contour with tikz.
It seems that the contour data is highly unsorted. Thus, the tikz plots don't look like they should. Is there any way to pre-sort the contour lines before exporting or do I have to manually piece the points together?

Cheers
Alex
