Mayavi2 is a general purpose, cross-platform tool for 3-D scientific data visualization. Its features include: * Visualization of scalar, vector and tensor data in 2 and 3 dimensions. * Easy scriptability using Python. * Easy extendibility via custom sources, modules, and data filters. * Reading several file formats: VTK (legacy and XML), PLOT3D, etc. * Saving of visualizations. * Saving rendered visualization in a variety of image formats. * Convenient functionality for rapid scientific plotting via mlab Mayavi2 has been designed with scriptability and extensibility in mind. Mayavi2 provides a mayavi2 application which is usable by itself. However, Mayavi2 may also be used as a plotting engine, in scripts, like with matplotlib or gnuplot, as well as a library for interactive visualizations in any other application. It may also be used as an Envisage plug-in which allows it to be embedded in other Envisage based applications natively.
