12. Visualization modules

The MDAnalysis.visualization namespace contains code to carry out analyses which return data that is specifically-tailored for visualization.

Please see the individual module documentation for additional references and citation information.

These modules are not imported by default; in order to use them one has to import them from MDAnalysis.visualization, for instance:

import MDAnalysis.visualization.streamlines


Some of the modules require additional Python packages such as matplotlib or scipy.
