Visualizing magnetic fields

  1. May 3, 2008 #1

    I'd like to visualize magnetic fields between magnets and charges. Fieldlines/streamlines would be ideal but e.g. vector arrows would do too.
    Although a 3D model would be perfect, any advice regarding 2D approaches is appreciated as well.

    Do you have any tipps on how to accomplish this? Which languages/programs should be used best? Do you know of any examples/tutorials out there?

    I have basic experience in OpenGL.

    Thanks a lot,
