Carbon takes many different forms and has a fantastic range of
properties. As well as graphite/diamond, a hexagonal diamond
called londsdaleite, and amorphous carbons of sp2, sp3 and mixed
natures there are all the fullerenes, graphene, nanotubes etc. For-
tunately, different electronic structures take distinct geometrical
forms, thus enabling us to differentiate between them. Deducing
the geometry of a sample that has been simulated is a crucial step
towards understanding its properties. Visualization is essential for
understanding sample geometries.
AViz  is an Atomistic Vizualization package developed at the
Technion that can be freely downloaded and installed. I will
present examples of still and animated AViz implementations for
viewing data from our atomistic simulations of carbon allotropes.
