We've recently developed a free software named MeteoExplorer Touch and would like to introduce it to you. I hope it will be helpful to your research and work.
MeteoExplorer Touch, based on the technology of desktop MeteoExplorer software，is a professional software for analyzing and visualizing scientific data. It is also the world first touch-oriented meteorological software optimized for Microsoft’s Windows 8 and Windows RT operating system. MeteoExplorer touch emphasizes performance by following native C++ development and tapping DirectX hardware acceleration rendering technology. It is also designed to be a productivity tool that makes no compromise in implementing its features. Indeed, it provides more than 70% features offered by MeteoExplorer. Moreover, by taking advantage of the touch-oriented functionalities in Windows 8/RT, MeteoExplorer Touch brings an all-new experience for atmospheric science researchers and professionals to process meteorological data on their mobile devices as well as PCs.
