Mayavi is the most used scientific 3D visualization Python software (http://mayavi.sourceforge.net/ ). It has been developed by Prabhu Ramachandran (IIT Bombay) and Gaël Varoquaux (Parietal , Inria Saclay). Mayavi can be used as a visualization tool, through interactive command line or as a library. It is distributed under Linux through Ubuntu, Debian, Fedora and Mandriva, as well as in PythonXY and EPD Python scientific distributions. Mayavi is used by several software platforms, such as PDE solvers (fipy, sfepy), molecule visualization tools (http://pyrx.scripps.edu ) and brain connectivity analysis tools (connectomeViewer).
