The following are a list of projects and web sites within the community at large which utilizes the IDV to some degree.
The Marine Data Literacy web site is an annotated collection of exercises and resource links, presenting technical methods for handling (managing, converting, analyzing and displaying) oceanographic station data, marine meteorological data, GIS-compatible marine and coastal data, and mapped remote sensing imagery. The Marine Data Literacy web site utilizes the Unidata IDV in an exercise to synthesis of operational marine data products.Go to the Marine Data Literacy web site
The Visual Geophysical Exploration Environment (VGEE) is a suite of computer tools and accompanying online curricular units that enable students to develop physical insight from geophysical data sets. The heart of the VGEE is the visualization environment, a customized version of the Integrated Data Viewer.Go to the Visual Geophysical Exploration Environment web site
Weather in a Tank is an NSF-funded project in which curricula materials that combine atmospheric data and laboratory fluid experiments are being developed in the teaching of meteorology, oceanography and climate at undergraduate level. The project utilizes the IDV to visualize basic principles of rotating fluid dynamics, teaching students how to move between phenomena in the real world, laboratory abstractions, theory and models.Go to the Weather in a Tank web site
China Weather Net provides public access to the most current weather products. They run the IDV every hour to generate more than 600 images files from the current weather data in less than 6 minutes.Go to the Real Time Weather Visualization web site
NOAA Center for Tsunami Research (NCTR) focuses on an integrated approach to improving tsunami warning and mitigation. The NCTR Propagation Database can be accessed for Hazard Assessment studies using the IDV and other visualization programs.Go to the NOAA Center for Tsunami Research web site
