Abstract: [Summary Extracted from the NCAR/ATD Home Page]
ncpp is an interactive plotting tool for workstations running X11/R5, Motif 1.2. ncpp allows the user to view histograms of PMS-1D probe data stored in netCDF files that conform to the NCAR-RAF/nimbus conventions. Both Low-rate and Mixed-rate files are supported, and files where the data have been reduced below 1 sps (sample per second), e.g., files ... run through ncav.
A few of its features are:
View raw counts, concentrations, surface area, and volume. Multiple frames (upto 7 x 9). Can draw from up to 3 netCDF files on the same plot.
ASCII window. ASCII window, with housekeeping and derived variables. Ability to edit cell diameters.
Allows user-defined titles, labels, scaling, and major & minor tic marks.
Ability to add Annotations. Publication quality [Encapsulated] [color] PostScript printouts.
ncpp was written at the Research Aviation Facility of The National Center for Atmospheric Research to view and analyze our aircraft data (and NOAA's GIV). The NCAR-RAF/nimbus conventions were designed to store multi-rate data, i.e., variable A may be stored at 5sps and variable B at 25sps. Every effort has been made to make it "what you see is what you get" between the screen and printouts
