The Colourful Nuclide Chart gives easy access to a wide variety of nuclear properties, and allows you to save high quality chart images for publications, presentations and outreach. To navigate the chart just:
Left click and drag to pan.
Right click and drag to rotate.
Scroll to zoom.
Double click to select.
The 3D Nuclide Chart displays data from a number of different nuclear data sources. Appropriate references are given on the Data Selection tab. Whilst the data displayed should be correct, no guarantee is given as to the accuracy of the presented information. If mistakes are spotted please let me know. Built using three.js.

There are curently problems on Ubunut 20.04 using Firefox and the amdgpu-pro driver. For now, Chrome works using the same OS/driver combination. This problem may exist on other linux distributions also.
Improved controls for displaying unknown, estimated and out-of-range values. Revised key. Added video export.
Added option for background colours (black to white) and transparency.
Major update to unified code with 2D version, and implementation of sprite sheet for text renderering. Should now be much faster! So remaining issues when changing fonts on Firefox.
First version for testing. Still to do:
Single [D1(N,Z)] and double [D2(N,Z)] difference modes for quantity V(N,Z) are defined as follows:
D1 = [V(N+dN,Z+dZ)-V(N-dN,Z-dZ)]/2(dZ2+dN2)1/2
D2 = [V(N+dN,Z+dZ)-2V(N,Z)+V(N-dN,Z-dZ)]/2(dZ2+dN2)1/2
where dN and dZ are 0 or 1 in the case of D1 and 2 in the case of D2. The direction of the difference is set by the radio button. These differences approximate the first and second derivatives of quantity V(N,Z). For some introductory discussions on this see:

This option will colour the nuclides by their decay mode according to the Binding Blocks colouring scheme. It is stronly recommended that you do not use this option unless you know what you're doing!
Video export is a new feature. It should work as intended, but is provided with no warranty whatsoever! Instructions for use can be found at the bottom of this panel. If you find it helpful, please let me know, and if sharing videos, please link back to the website.
Videos are constructed through the use of keyframes, which set the camera position and target. When the video is made, the camera smoothly transitions between these keyframes.
For more precise control, the mapping between the colour range and the data range can be altered. Below, the first numbers correspond to the point on the define range of colours, and the second number in the text box gives the corresponding fractional point between the minimum and maximum data values.
