We can divide the field of visualization up in those that display Point like data (e.g. N-body simulations),and Grid like data (e.g. datacubes), and some can do both! Here are some common ones in use in astronomy:

Contents

Point like data

  • one
  • two

Grid like data

  • ds9: primarily FITS, 2D and 3D
  • visit
  • mayavi
  • yt

Point and Grid like data

  • glnemo2: although meant for point like data, it can simulate grid like data
  • two

Mixed data

  • GlueViz: a python based toolkit that does grid and point data and can also do dynamic queries
  • TopCat : a java baded toolkit and program to visualize data and also do dynamic queries
