Re: [idvusers] Pow Command in formula definition

Hi Juan,

Here is what you will need to do:

First define a Jython function (Edit, Formulas, Jython Library, User's
Library).

,----
| def windchill(temp, wspeed):
|     """
|     Windchill formula according to
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wind_chill
|     """
|     # Must strip off units to make VisAD happy.
|     T = noUnit(temp)
|     WS = noUnit(wspeed)
|     # ** is how you exponentiate, to answer your original question
|     WC = 13.12 + 0.6215 * (T - 273.15) - 11.37 * (WS * 3.6)**0.16 +
0.3965 * (
|         T - 273.15) * (WS * 3.6)**0.16
|     # Reattaching units.
|     return newUnit(WC, "windchill", "celsius")
`----

Save your new Jython function.

Now go to the Edit, Formulas, Create Formula menu item. The description
and name of the formula are up to you. The formula will be:

,----
| windchill(temperature, windspeed)
`----

At this point, load up some data. You will see your new formula in the
IDV Dashboard, Field Selector tab. When you create a display with it,
the IDV will prompt you for the fields you want. Select 3D fields. I
don't think 2D fields will work.

Hope this helps.

Best,
