4  The idea behind is to provide an easy to use interface and unified to a variety of  \section{Introduction}
 visualization tools like \VTK, \OpenDX and \GnuPlot.  
5    
6  The following script illustartes the usage of \pyvisi together with the  \pyvisi provides an easy to use interface to the \VTK visualization
7  \VTK library:  tool.  
 \begin{python}  
 from esys.pyvisi import *                # base level visualisation stuff  
 from esys.pyvisi.renderers.vtk import *  # vtk renderer module  
 from esys.escript import *  
 from esys.finley import Brick  
 # now make some data of some kind  
 domain = Brick(3,5,7)  # a Finley domain  
 vectorData = domain.getX()  # get vector data from the domain nodes  
 # define the scene object  
 scene = Scene()  
 # create an ArrowPlot object  
 plot = ArrowPlot(scene)  
 # add the plot to the scene  
 scene.add(plot)  
 # assign some data to the plot  
 plot.setData(vectorData)  
 # render the scene  
 scene.render()  
 # saving a scene  
 scene.save(file="example.jpg", format="jpeg")  
 \begin{python}  
 A \Scene is a container for all of the kinds of things you want to put into your plot,  
 for instance, images, domaines, arrow plots, contour plots, spheres etc.  
 The renderer is specified in the scene initialisation. In fact the  
 \code{from esys.pyvisi.renderers.vtk import *} provides the specific implementation for  
 \VTK
