New IDV Tutorial Videos: the Mapes IDV Collection

Three new IDV tutorials created by Dr. Brian Mapes of the University of Miami's Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences (RSMAS) are available on Unidata's YouTube channel. The new tutorials introduce the Mapes IDV Collection, which is a curated compilation of IDV bundles and "templates" delivered in the form of an IDV plugin. Dr. Mapes is building the Collection to bring together and provide easy access to some interesting datasets and displays that he uses in his own research and teaching.

The IDV plugin mechanism allows Dr. Mapes to provide a self-updating set of features to any IDV user who installs the plugin. Note that after the plugin is installed, the entries that appear will change as he makes modifications to the collection. (The collection updates automatically based on the contents of Dr. Mapes' RAMADDA server at the University of Miami each time the IDV is started.)

The three new screencasts are:

We encourage those interested in learning more about the IDV to watch and send comments and feedback to the Unidata IDV development team or to Dr. Mapes. We are open to suggestions for future screencast topics, and encourage you to send in topic requests.

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:
