the framework of "CCN
- the Chemistry Contact Network" we develope tools for
comprehensive visualization, investigation and communication, especially
for topologically complicated systems. Our platform independent
system allows researchers to share common tasks by synchronous and
asynchronous remote interaction.
is a CCN computer
program for scientific visualization, based on the platform of AVS/Express.
The structure of CURVIS is modular,
and designed for over-the-web use. CURVIS
provides an easy production of communication materials in form of
animations, videos, and interactive 3D-elements.
CURVIS is used especially for visualization
and investigation of PNS3,
their properties and applications.
