Projects We Work On

yt

yt is a python package for analyzing and visualizing volumetric, multi-resolution data. The project supports astrophysical simulations, understanding of non-spatial data, voluming rendering of visulations for high-quality scientific outreach videos, and developing systems for unstructured mesh datasets.
  • Data access and manipulation
  • Visualization though Slices, projections, oblique slices.
  • Parallel execution
