hook_views_convertStub hook documentation
hook_views_dataDescribe table structure to Views.
hook_views_data_alterAlter table structure.
hook_views_default_viewsThis hook allows modules to provide their own views which can either be used as-is or as a "starter" for users to build from.

hook_views_post_buildThis hook is called right after the build process. The query is now fully built, but it has not yet been run through db_rewrite_sql.

hook_views_pre_buildThis hook is called right before the build process, but after displays are attached and the display performs its pre_execute phase.
hook_views_pre_executeThis hook is called right before the execute process. The query is now fully built, but it has not yet been run through db_rewrite_sql.
hook_views_pre_renderThis hook is called right before the render process. The query has been executed, and the pre_render() phase has already happened for handlers, so all data should be available.
