Ncvtk - A Program for Exploring Planetary Data Stored in a NetCDF FilesEntry ID: Ncvtk
Abstract: Ncvtk has been designed with the aim of offering a high degree of interactivity to scientists who have a need to explore three-dimensional, time-dependent planetary data. The input data should be stored in a NetCDF file and the metadata should loosely follow the CDC convention. In particular, we support codes that are part of the Flexible Modeling System infrastructure provided the data lie on a ... longitude/latitude, structured grid.
Ncvtk contains a number of built-in VTK visualization pipelines (color plots, contours, vector arrows, slices, etc.). New pipelines can be added on demand.
An intuitive graphical user interface will get novice users quickly up to speed. Ncvtk is significantly easier to use than dedicated visualization packages (OpenDX, IRIS Explorer, AVS/Express) while offering comparable performance.
