Chemiscope: interactive structure/property explorer for materials and molecules

Welcome to the documentation of the chemiscope visualization tool, an interactive structure/property explorer for materials and molecules. The goal of chemiscope is to provide interactive exploration of large databases of materials and molecules and help researchers to find structure-properties correlations inside such databases. The screenshot below shows an example of such database being visualized with chemiscope. The first part of this documentation describes the default interface of chemiscope and how to use it with your own database.

Chemiscope is built around re-usable components, that can be arranged in different manners to create visualization adapted to different kinds of data. The second part of this documentation explains how to build the code and use it in your own website to create new interfaces.
