yt

Category: Analysis-Visualization

Description

yt is a python package for analyzing and visualizing astrophysical simulation output. It works with a couple different simulation platforms -- like enzo, orion, flash, and soon ramses and gadget! -- and it was designed to make it straightforward to ask questions of your data. Mostly it's used to look at adaptive mesh refinement data.

It's written in Python, it works on datasets from the very large to the very small, and it's free and open source.

yt abstracts the underlying data structures of your data and instead asks you to operate on physically-relevant quantities. This means that it's easy to do things like projections, slices, phase plots, histograms, clump finding, halo finding, and it can even volume render your data.
