GDIS is a scientific visualization program for the display, manipulation, and analysis of isolated molecules and periodic structures. It is in development, but is nonetheless quite functional. It has the following features:
GDIS also allows you to perform the following functions through other packages:
- Support for many common file formats (CIF, PDB, XTL, XYZ, and many more).
- Job submission tools for computational chemistry packages:
ReaxMD, and SIESTA.
- Job analysis and graphing tools for dynamics simulations.
- Useful manipulation tools, including matrix transformations and
- Powerful surface generation and crystal morphology tools.
- Diffraction pattern generation and plotting.
- Animation of multi-frame files.
- Assorted tools for visualization (measurements, ribbons, polyhedral display).
Although developed on a Linux platform, GDIS has been successfully compiled under IRIX, Solaris, OpenBSD, OS-X, and even Windows.
