Entry ID: UCAR_VAPOR
Abstract: Visualization and Analysis Platform for Ocean, Atmosphere, and Solar Researchers (VAPOR) provides:
1. A visual data discovery environment tailored towards the specialized needs of the geosciences CFD community
2. A desktop solution capable of handling terascale size data sets
3. Advanced interactive 3D visualization tightly coupled with quantitative data analysis
4. Support for multi-variate, time-varying data
5. Close coupling with RSI's powerful interpretive data language, IDL.
6. Support for 3D visualization of WRF-ARW datasets
