Interactive data visualization with python
Welcome! Looking for a fast and flexible visualization software? Here we present psyplot, an open source python project that mainly combines the plotting utilities of matplotlib and the data management of the xarray package and integrates them into a software that can be used via command-line and via a GUI!
The main purpose is to have a framework that allows a fast, attractive, flexible, easily applicable, easily reproducible and especially an interactive visualization of your data.
The ultimate goal is to help scientists in their daily work by providing a
flexible visualization tool that can be enhanced by their own visualization
psyplot can be used via command line and with the
graphical user interface (GUI) from the
