Recent development in classical electrodynamics has demonstratedthe usefulness of different rotational and topological modes in theelectromagnetic fields (angular momentum, polarization, vorticityetc.). Unfortunately, the visualization tools available to illustratethese electrodynamic quantities have hitherto been inadequate.Therefore we have developed a VTK and Python based interactivevisualization tool, with working name EMVT (ElectroMagnetic VisualizationTool), targeted at visualizing precisely these modes.In the near future, EMVT will be further developed to visualize andcontrol live antenna systems, where electromagnetic field data isinstantly received, calculated, and visualized from an antenna or asystem of antennas. It will then be possible to see how the antennaproperties change through direct user interaction in real time.
