Neuron Analysis Visualization Library

Project description

[![Documentation Status](]( [![Build Status](]( [![Coverage Status](]( [![Binder](](

<img src="" height="30"> NAVis
NAVis is a Python 3 library for **N**euron **A**nalysis and **Vis**ualization
with focus on hierarchical tree-like neuron data.

## Documentation
NAVis is on [ReadTheDocs]( "NAVis ReadTheDocs").

## Features

* interactive 2D (matplotlib) and 3D (vispy or plotly) plotting of neurons
* virtual neuron surgery: cutting, pruning, rerooting
* clustering methods (e.g. by connectivity or synapse placement)
* R bindings (e.g. for libraries [nat](, [rcatmaid](, [elmr](
* interfaces with Blender 3D and Cytoscape

## Getting started
See the [documentation]( "NAVis ReadTheDocs") for detailed installation instructions, tutorials and examples. For the impatient:

`pip3 install navis`
