"yt is an open-source, permissively-licensed python package for analyzing and visualizing volumetric data.
yt supports structured, variable-resolution meshes, unstructured meshes, and discrete or sampled data such as particles. Focused on driving physically-meaningful inquiry, yt has been applied in domains such as astrophysics, seismology, nuclear engineering, molecular dynamics, and oceanography. Composed of a friendly community of users and developers, we want to make it easy to use and develop — we'd love it if you got involved!"

"yt was originally begun by Matthew Turk in 2007 in the course of his graduate studies in computational astrophysics. The code was developed as a simple data-reader and exporter for grid-based hydrodynamical simulation data outputs from the Enzo code. Over the next few years, he invited collaborators and friends to contribute and use yt. As the community grew, so did the capabilities of yt. It is now a community-developed project with contributions from many people, the hospitality of several institutions, and benefiting from numerous grants. With this community-driven approach and contributions from a sizeable population of developers, it has evolved into a fully-featured toolkit for analysis and visualization of multidimensional data. It relies on no proprietary software – although it can be and has been extended to interface with proprietary software and libraries – and has been designed from the ground up to enable users to be as immersed in the data as they desire."
