You should give our APL at Voro a try! It is an interactive program 
providing a very fast method to analyze membranes visually (works also 
with PDB+trajectories), supporting 2D and 3D plots as well as the option 
to select different areas of your membrane and plot the area per lipid 
(by the way, you can also analyze the membrane thickness). The tool was 
published in JCIM and is open source:


If you have any question, just contact me or directly Gunther Lukat - 
who is the main developer of APL at Voro. His email you will find at the 

Best wishes
