Following suggestions from our Users and steering committees, Unidata has begun creating short video tutorials designed to introduce viewers to different aspects of our software. Our plan is to create new videos (and update existing videos) as time and resources allow.
The first three tutorials were created by IDV developer Julien Chastang, and deal with some basic IDV concepts related to displaying and subsetting model data. We encourage those interested in learning more about the IDV to watch and send us comments and feedback on our initial efforts. We are open to suggestions for future screencast topics, and encourage you to send in topic requests.
The videos are posted on Unidata's YouTube channel. When viewing videos on YouTube, be sure to select "720p HD" (or the highest quality video your Internet connection will allow) from the YouTube settings menu (the gear-shaped icon in the lower right corner of the video window). You may also want to view the videos in full-screen mode.
The IDV videos are also available for download from Unidata's RAMADDA at:
Please contact us by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions or suggestions about the IDV video series.
