Three screencasts related to the IDV have been posted to the Unidata YouTube channel in the past month. Two are contributions from members of the IDV user community, and one was created by Unidata Program Center staff to explain several features of the newly released IDV version 5.0.
The new screencasts are:
- Screencast 10 - Matthew Dewey explores synoptic meteorology looks at the IDV from the point of view of a student doing lab excercises for a synoptic meteorology course at Metro State University in Denver, CO.
- Screecast 11 - Professor Mapes IDV Seminar on Climate and Weather presents a talk given by Professor Brian Mapes of the University of Miami on studying weather and climate using tools including the IDV and RAMADDA.
- Screencast 12 - Adaptive Resolution and Match Display Region is a quick overview of two new features in the IDV 5.0 release that make it faster and easier to work with large satellite images using the IDV.
We encourage those interested in learning more about the IDV to watch and send comments and feedback to the Unidata IDV development team. We are open to suggestions for future screencast topics, and encourage you to send in topic requests.
