Postby leonard » Sun Mar 17, 2013 10:43 pm

Dear all,
I'd like to introduce the MeteoExplorer software and hope it would be helpful to your research and work.

MeteoExplorer (ME) is a cross-platform software for analyzing and rendering atmospheric science and geoscience data. It supports popular data formats including WMO GRIB1/GRIB2, NetCDF, GrADS, and MICAPS, and provides basic GIS functionalities. Developed with C++, MeteoExplorer targets multiple computing platforms including Microsoft Windows, GNU Linux, and SGI IRIX operating systems.

Technical Advantages (top 5 reasons to choose ME)

1. Cross-platform support
Native support for Windows, Linux, and Irix operating system, you can get your work done on your favorite platform

2 High performance
- Developed with native C++;
- Low system resource requirements;
- Fast startup;
- Hardware acceleration rendering with OpenGL.

3 Vector graphics output at your fingertip
Thanks to our cutting-edge rendering engine, you can export screen content as vector graphics image and paste it into your document or presentation.

4 Objective analysis everywhere
MeteoExplorer provides advanced objective analysis method that meets the requirements of real-world operation. Isolines of analytical field not only agree well with observatory data, but are as elegantly smooth as those manually drawn by forecasters.

5 Support all popular meteorological data formats.
MeteoExplorer supports commonly used data formats including WMO GRIB1/GRIB2, NetCDF, GrADS, and MICAPS (1,2,3,4,14), and hopes to free users from chores of processing data.
