VEGA OpenGL can calculate and display several types of molecular surface trough its 3D engine. It's possible to display some local molecular properties like hydropathicity, lipophilicity, volume, molecular charges, etc.

Surface mapping dialog box

The user can define the type of surface, the probe radius and the density of dots. The surface can be saved in Quanta format (binary), Insight/Biosym format (ASCII).
