Postby alan » Fri May 30, 2008 6:49 pm

VAPOR 1.3 has been released (http://www.vapor.ucar.edu) including several new capabilities useful in visualizing WRF-ARW datasets.
Includes:
-Image based flow visualization: You can see the wind motion and direction in the probe panel as you position in the dataset.
-Isosurfaces can be colored by mapping another variable from the dataset
-A new user preferences panel to customize the app to individual users and platforms.

For more information, see the release notes at

A Vapor patch (Version 1.3.2) was released on June 16, fixing a bug in vapor 1.3.0 that resulted in the incorrect interpolation of vertically staggered WRF variables. This fix impacts only data sets generated via the wrf2vdf command line tool. All WRF users should upgrade from 1.3.0 to 1.3.2. New installers are available at the vapor web site http://www.vapor.ucar.edu

I downloaded the Intel Mac binaries for version 1.3.2. This is my first installation of vapor, I do not have any previous versions on my computer.

I did not find wrfvdfcreate or wrf2vdf in with the distribution (I checked in the /usr/local/bin directory - saw other vapor files, but not these two). Are they missing from the distribution or do I need to download them from some other source?

Thanks for your help.
