VESTA software is a 3D visualization program for structural models and 3D pixel data such as electron/nuclear densities.

VESTA stands for "Visualization of Electronic and STructural Analysis". It is a cross-platform program written in the C++ language on the basis of OpenGL technology.

Structural models are represented as ball-and-stick, space-filling, polyhedral, wireframe, stick, and thermal-ellipsoid models. Ball-and-stick, wireframe, and stick models can be overlapped with dotted surfaces corresponding to van der Waals radii.

Electron/nuclear densities, wave functions, and electrostatic potentials are visualized as isosurfaces, bird's-eye views, and two-dimensional (2D) maps. VESTA has a feature of surface colorization to show another kind of a physical quantity at each point on isosurfaces. Translucent isosurfaces can be overlapped with a structural model.

VESTA can read 38 file formats such as CIF, ICSD, INS, and PDB. Electron densities calculated by WinGX (Fourier synthesis), PRIMA (MEM), and superflip (charge flipping) can be directly read in. VESTA can handle virtually unlimited number of objects such as atoms, bonds, polyhedra, and polygons on isosurfaces. VESTA supports multiple windows, each of which may contain multiple tabs corresponding to files.
