The techniques for obtaining continuously distributed local properties from the positions and velocities of constituent atoms were investigated. The local density, temperature, and velocity were calculated using a localization function from the results of molecular dynamics simulations of shock waves in a two dimensional system. The spatial variations of the local properties were obtained and the width of the localization function was varied to optimize the presentation.
