The working group also includes activities related to the analysis tools and managers defined in Geant4.
Geometry Description Markup Language is an XML-based language dedicated to detector geometry description. GDML binding for Geant4 allows reading GDML information into Geant4, as well as writing out GDML files from the Geant4 geometry.
ASCII, text-format Detector Persistency
Geometry Description persistency based on a plain text description, according to a well defined syntax for identifying the different geometrical entities (solids, volumes, materials and volume attributes) with associated parameters.
Geant4 Object Persistency
The goal of the Geant4 Object Persistency work package is to provide the interface for the Root I/O machinery. Such an interface would allow saving all the geometry information from a Geant4 application into the Root binary file. The file could then be reused in different applications.
The HepMC interface provides a way of storing the Monte Carlo Truth information coming from a Geant4 simulation, using the HepMC event record.
The analysis module in Geant4 provides classes and tools for allowing generation of simple histograms and n-tuples in different file formats (ROOT, AIDA XML, CSV and HBOOK).
