CERT Rayon can be used to automate reporting; provide data visualization in command-line, GUI, or web applications; or perform ad-hoc exploratory data analysis. It can generate visualizations in PDF, PNG, SVG, and PostScript formats using Pycairo. It can also be used in wxPython GUI applications.

CERT Rayon consists of two components: (1) the Rayon Python library, which can be used to add visualization capabilities to Python scripts and (2) rytools, which is a set of command-line tools used for drawing common statistical data visualizations, such as scatterplots, bar plots, and time series visualizations.
