  Description     : A scientific visualization package for 2-D and 3-D data

 MayaVi2 is a cross-platform tool for 2-D and 3-D scientific data
 visualization.  Its features include:
   * Visualization of scalar, vector and tensor data in 2 and 3 dimensions
   * Easy scriptability using Python
   * Easy extendability via custom sources, modules, and data filters
   * Reading several file formats: VTK (legacy and XML), PLOT3D, etc.
   * Saving of visualizations
   * Saving rendered visualization in a variety of image formats.
 MayaVi2 has been designed with scriptability and extensibility in mind.  While
 the mayavi2 application is usable by itself, it may be used as an Envisage
 plugin which allows it to be embedded in user applications natively.
 Alternatively, it may be used as a visualization engine for any application.
 This debian package actually bundles several useful packages from the Enhought
 Tool Suite -- tvtk (traited VTK), Envisage and various handy envisage plugins
 used by the default mayavi application.
