Geoscientific visualization tools for VTK and ParaView
The PVGeo Python package contains VTK powered tools for data visualization in geophysics which are wrapped for direct use within the application ParaView by Kitware. These tools are tailored to data visualization in the geosciences with a heavy focus on structured data sets like 2D or 3D time-varying grids.
Demonstrations of PVGeo
For a quick overview of how PVGeo can be used in a Python environment or directly within ParaView, checkout the code snippets and videos on the About Examples Page
Also, check out the demo page for a synopsis of the project and some visualization examples. Then check out the rest of the full website to explore the technical aspects of the project and to find use examples.

The PVGeo code library is managed by Bane Sullivan, graduate student in the Hydrological Science and Engineering interdisciplinary program at the Colorado School of Mines under Whitney Trainor-Guitton. If you would like to contact us, inquire with firstname.lastname@example.org.
It is important to note the project is open source and that many features in this repository were made possible by contributors volunteering their time. Head over to the Contributors Page to learn more about the developers of PVGeo.
To begin using the PVGeo Python package, create a new Python virtual environment and install PVGeo through pip.
# Use Python 2.7 $ conda create -n PVGeoEnv27 python=2.7 $ conda activate PVGeoEnv27 (PVGeoEnv27) $ pip install PVGeo
Non-Windows users: Now you must install VTK to your virtual environment. For Linux and Mac users, simply install VTK through
# Now install VTK (PVGeoEnv27) $ pip install vtk
Linking PVGeo to ParaView
Now PVGeo is ready for use in your standard Python environment (non-Windows) and ready for use in ParaView! To use the PVGeo library as plugins in ParaView, please see the detailed explanation here.
