MAPS provides a powerful analysis toolkit for all properties generated by the supported simulation engines. In addition MAPS offers a collection of Python based tools that extend its standard analysis capability.


A versatile tool which enables comparison and analysis of molecular structures and simulation results. Using column-hiding and row-filtering, it is easy to zoom-in on the properties of interest and, where appropriate, select groups of atoms in multiple Viewers

Rheological properties

Calculate the equilibrium (zero shear) viscosity of a liquid. Based on the Green Kubo method, the stress – stress correlation function is calculated from a molecular dynamics simulation and integrated to give the equilibrium shear viscosity

Compare Structure

Use the model viewer to overlay structures or calculate the RMS differences

Electronic properties

Calculate electronic properties like for example band structures or electron densities from periodic structure quantum mechanics simulations

FHMixing analysis

Analyze phase behavior of binary mixtures from FHMixing Flory Huggins calculations


Reaction Properties

Use classical molecular dynamics simulation to study large scale reactive systems and go beyond the observation time typically accessible from quantum mechanics simulation. You can analyze the results of ReaxFF simulations of reactions like combustion, oxidation and polymerization in order to study the effect of various parameters e.g., temperature, pressure and composition.


Set up and analyze molecular dynamics simulations with LAMMPS to predict the stress/strain curve and calculate the Young’s modulus and the Poisson ratio of a material.


Visualize iso-surfaces of molecular orbitals, electron density, electrostatic potential, electron localization function. Animate normal modes for visual inspection. Plot density of states, band structure, phonons, infrared, RAMAN, NMR spectra, dielectric and optical properties. Use high quality
capability and create sophisticated plots.

Thermal properties

Calculate glass transition temperature of polymers and liquids.



Plot enthalpy, entropy, heat capacity and Helmholtz energy as a function of temperature or pressure when vibrational properties of a molecular system have been computed.

Structural properties

Obtain structural properties of the systems such as pair distribution functions, radius of gyration, angle and dihedral distributions.

Compute and visualize free volume and free surface. Analyze void in crystalline and amorphous periodic systems. Identify pores and channels and calculate maximum pore diameters or pore size distribution. Calculate size distribution of micelles in emulsions. Compute the density profiles of molecules along different axis or in a cylindrical or sphere.

Mechanical Properties

Predict elastic and viscoelastic properties of materials

 Transport properties

Compute mean square displacement and diffusion coefficients. Calculate Thermal conductivity from non-equilibrium molecular dynamics.
