Overview of Plotmtv

The application plotmtv is a fast multi-purpose plotting program for visualization of scientific data in an X11-window environment. Each plot comes with a simple but functional Graphical User Interface which allows users to zoom in or pan to areas of interest on the plot or to toggle between 2D and 3D plots.

Please read the Introduction which will give details as to how to program correctly to get the desired data plots, and the additional commands available to change the data. Some of the different graphing capabilities include:

2D Curves (Connected sets of (x,y) points in 2-space)

3D Contour Plots (Connected sets of (x,y,z) points in 3-space)

3-Space Mapping

2D/3D Vector Data and Raster Map (Vectors in 2-space/ 3-space)
