Evolution of the dark matter distribution of Andromeda (center), Milky Way (upper right) and M33 (lower right) in a ~ 2 Mpc/h region (Clues3_LGGas), starting at redshift z=42. The colours represent the dark matter density. (K. Riebe; PMViewer).

A view on the Local Group (along the z-axis of the simulation box, Clues3_LGGas) with a flight to M33 from a distance of ~ 3.3 Mpc/h to 300 kpc/h (redshift z=0).
Colors reflect the gas density (brighter = higher density).
The first seconds of the movie show the dark matter distribution of the Local Group for comparison.

MDPL2 – Multidark Planck 2 simulation

FOF-halos from a slice through the MultiDark Planck 2 simulation (MDPL2) at redshift z = 0 (snapshot 125), x-y-plane. The slice is about 4.9 Mpc/h thick and encloses the region of the most massive halo in this simulation. The image shows the distribution of FOF halos, the size of points was correlated with their mass, overlaying dots are emphasized by brighter color.
The image was created using Topcat and the data from following query:

select x,y,z, mass, size from MDPL2.FOF where snapnum=125 and iz between 981 and 985

In Topcat, make a plane plot, adjust Form to mass, Shading to density with color table Cold and move the scale slider below the coordinates up to the maximum.
(Kristin Riebe, Topcat)
