User manual

This manual presents an overview of how to interact with the chemiscope viewer in its “standard” implementation - including the web tool and the jupyter widget. It does not discuss in detail how to build a low-dimensional representation of a chemical dataset - chemiscope is solely a viewer, and there are many tools available to perform this kind of analyses.

This section starts introducing the concept of structural and physical properties, before describing how to use the different panels in the standard visualization. It continues by presenting how you can generate a chemiscope input file to load on, as well as within a standalone HTML viewer which does not require internet connectivity. See the Python module documentation for how to interact with chemiscope in a script, or to explore a dataset directly inside a jupyter notebook.
