If your data is an image x pixels wide by y pixels high, it is a two-dimensional data set. If you are dealing with spatial data that involves the x, y, and z position of nodes, it is a three-dimensional data set.
The number of dimensions in the original data set does not have to be the same in OpenCL. For example, you can process a three-dimensional data set as a single dimensional data set in OpenCL.
