    Program or toolbox for 2d visualisation.


    I want to develop a a visualisation of a number of tracking algorithms I
    am working on. I want to show a number of sensors with their range
    represented as circles, intersecting circles shown as coloured areas,
    target moving past sensors etc.

    I'm fine with programming the algorithms and getting output as
    coordinates, but I'm hoping someone could suggest a suitable tool for
    developing the visualisation.

    I'd also like it to be real time, the tracking algorithm takes input from
    the serial port and updates over time, so I'd prefer it to appear like an
    animation, rather than just drawing a single static picture.

    Ideas most appreciated.

    Have you done any graphics programming at all?

    I'd recommend the SDL, but there's a debate going on about whether it's any good or not, so I won't way anything for the time being . . . .
