Plotting Charge Density

  • #1

Main Question or Discussion Point

I have a charge density I would like to plot in 3D

The data is currently in the format

x1 y1 z1 density
x2 y2 z2 density
etc
etc

where x,y,z are grid points. Can this kind of data be formatted as an xyz file? I know xyz is normally atom locations (I have no explicit atoms), but I have heard it can be done.

The program I am using to plot it is gopenmol, which expects plt format. I can convert xyz to plt but not sure how to convert my data to xyz

Thanks

It doesn't sound like it. It sounds to me like an xyz file represents a different kind of data. I'd suggest looking at xcrysden or vesta for plotting charge density in 3D.
