MayaVi is a free, cross platform, easy-to-use scientific data visualizer. It provides a powerful GUI to ease the visualization process. It is written in Python and uses the Visualization Toolkit (VTK) for the graphics. MayaVi can be scripted from other Python programs and also from the interactive Python interpreter. MayaVi includes the VTK Pipeline browser. The VTK Pipeline browser is a Python module (vtkPipeline) that enables one to view and configure the objects in the VTK pipeline graphically with a Tkinter-based GUI. The browser should work for any Python script that uses VTK. MayaVi also provides classes to pickle a VTK object and a simple class documentation browser. (Source:
