OpenGL rendering (requires gtkglarea)
Assorted tools for visualization (measurements, ribbons, polyhedral display)
Useful manipulation tools, including matrix transformations and periodic image display.
Powerful surface generation and crystal morphology tools.
Animation of BIOSYM and GULP trajectory files

GDIS also allows you to perform the following functions through other packages:
