Model Description
The tool allows the user to request a grid of regions-of-interest where particle data is then used to compute 3D and reduced distribution funnctions.

Model Input
Inputs include the VPIC model run to work on, the area of interest (XMIN,XMAX,ZMIN,ZMAX in electron scales), the number of ROIs in X and Z, and the type of ROI (rectangular, field-aligned with parallel of flux-tube boundaries).

Model Output
Outputs include a map of ROIs, preview plots of reduced distribution functions and 3D and reduced distribution functions in [X,Y,Z], [B,UxB,Bx(UxB)] and [B, ExB, Bx(ExB)] coordinates.

Limitations and Caveats
The tool only works on particle data by the 2016 VPIC model version.
