The PVGeo python package contains VTK powered tools for data visualization in geophysics which are wrapped for direct use within the application ParaView by Kitware. These tools are tailored to data visualization in the geosciences with a heavy focus on structured data sets like 2D or 3D time-varying grids.

This website hosts the code documentation for the PVGeo python package found on GitHub and PyPI. This website strictly documents the code so that users have a convenient and familiar means of searching through the library to understand the backend of the features they are using. If you are searching for examples and demonstrations on how to use the PVGeo library, then head over to the full website where you can find tutorials with sample data sets and links to many other helpful resources.

For a quick overview of how PVGeo can be used in a Python environment or directly within ParaView, please checkout the code snippets and videos on the About Examples Page.
