## Overview

Library of routines to facilitate creating better visualizations controlled from IDL, though not using IDL exclusively. Some routines use external applications such as ImageMagick and POV-Ray.

Both direct graphics and object graphics systems are addressed; many routines calculate graphics system independent data like a set of vertices and connectivity list that can be visualized in either graphics system.

## Directories
