Does OxyPlot fit my needs?

Hi,

Firstly, I know there is no component that is made for my specific use. I am asking this to check how OxyPlot is near to my needs and to estimate the time I might need to implement lacked features.

I am going to work on a scientific program which shows 2D contour plots, heat maps, grid lines and velocity vectors. Moreover, user might draw some lines on the data, or pick some points, as well as zoom and pan data. The area of the data is not necessarily rectangular.

Which of aforementioned abilities is already present and which I should implement by myself?
Is OxyPlot completely MVVM-friendly? (I read somewhere that its contour plot is not) How much time it takes for a newly-migrated-from-winforms developer to implement specific features?

Thank you in advance

Right, HeatMapSeries and ContourSeries do not have WPF wrappers yet. Otherwise I am trying hard to make the library very MVVM-friendly.

Vector fields are not implemented, but should be easy to add as a custom series. Good idea for an example. Could also be included in the core library, I think.

See the "example browser" for examples on mouse events, grid lines, zooming and panning.
