Paper Abstract

Volumetric data (scalar data sampled on a three dimensional grid) is effectively imaged by methods of direct volume rendering. We describe the volume rendering program RMSVOLUME created specifically for the rendering of data from macromolecular systems. Applications of the program to the display of electron density from xray crystallography and electron microscopy are presented.
