The yt project is a Python library for the analysis and visualization of volumetric data. It provides a uniform, physically motivated API for performing inquiry and visualization on data defined on particles as well as regular, adaptive, and unstructured meshes. It supports loading data in more than a dozen real-world research data formats used by domain specialists in the physical sciences working both real-world volumetric measurements and simulated data.
