- Data formats:
- DataSetAttr formats:
Scalars, ColorScalars, LookupTable, Vectors,
Normals, TextureCoordinates, Tensors, Field
- MayaVi - free, easy
to use scientific data visualizer, written in Python by Prabhu
- Python (PyVTK is developed under Python 2.1, but it is tested to work also with Python 1.5.2 and 2.0)
- Snapshots of release:
PyVTK, unpack the source file, change to directory
