NCPP interactive plotting tool (NCAR/EOL)Entry ID: NCAR_ATD_NCPP
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, 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
