Unidata Program Center developer Yuan Ho, along with John Clyne of NCAR's Computational and Information Systems Laboratory (CISL), will once again be presenting a data analysis workshop at the American Geophysical Union's Fall meeting in San Francisco. The workshop will provide an overview of several of the open source software packages that are most relevant to researchers and educators in the geosciences, including Unidata's Integrated Data Viewer (IDV), NCAR's Visualization and Analysis Platform for Ocean, Atmosphere, and Solar Researchers (VAPOR), the Grid Analysis and Display System (GrADS) from the Center for Ocean-Land-Atmosphere Studies, and NCAR's NCAR Command Language (NCL).
Attendees will gain a basic understanding of the capabilities of each package and of which tools might be most useful in their own research or education activities. Time will be available for conversation with the software developers.
