An object oriented approach to visualization of 1D to 4D data.
Visvis is a pure Python library for visualization of 1D to 4D data in an object oriented way. It can visualize plots (lines with markers), show images, and render 3D volumes. These data can also be moved in time. Visvis is cross-platform, lightweight, and is designed to be easily extendable.
Essentially, visvis is an object oriented layer of Python on top of OpenGl, thereby combining the power of OpenGl with the usability of Python. A Matlab-like interface in the form of a set of functions allows easy creation of objects (e.g. plot(), imshow(), volshow()).
Visvis can be used in Python scripts, interactive Python shells (as with IPython) and can be embedded in GUI applications.
