This applet shows the lattice points, the first Brioullin zone and important symmetry elements of the base centered lattice in the reciprocal space and it also provides the visualization of the real lattice points, the Wigner Seitz cell and importand symmetry elements corresponding to it. It is written with the JavaView library which can be downloaded at
