The Unidata Integrated Data Viewer (IDV)
Entry ID: UNIDATA_IDV


Summary
Abstract: The Integrated Data Viewer (IDV) from Unidata is a software library package and software framework for visualizing and analyzing geoscience data. This IDV release includes a Java(TM)-based software library, and applications made from that software. It uses the VisAD library for data models and creating visualization systems, and other Java-based utility packages. The IDV is created at the Unidata Program Center (UPC), part of the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research, Boulder, Colorado, which is funded by the National Science Foundation. The software is freely available under the terms of the GNU Lesser General Public License. The IDV brings together the ability to display and work with satellite imagery, gridded data (for example, from numerical weather prediction model output), surface observations, balloon soundings, and radar data, all within a unified interface. The IDV can display any Earth-located data if it is provided in a valid netCDF file with sufficient metadata regarding navigation and units.
