that can be opened in the popular ParaView visualization application. Additionally
a file reader is provided to import VTK files into Dune grid and data objects.
## Requirements
For the management of the grids the `dune-grid` module is required. Additionally
for the data evaluation, the `dune-functions` module is used.
### Optional modules
For tests and examples `dune-spgrid` and `dune-polygongrid` are suggested, that
support structured grid data or special element types.
## Usage
The VTK writer works similar to the dune-grid `VTKWriter`. It needs to be bound
to a GridView and then data can be added to the points or cells in the grid.

We measure the file size (per processor) and the memory requirement of ParaView
to visualize the data.
