David, Thank you for your interest in the IDV and participation in the humanitarian response in Nepal. Yes, the IDV can provide many forecasts variables pertaining to meteorology and is a sophisticated tool for geoscience visualization and analysis. Ideally, the best would be to come to our training workshops, but that only happens per year unfortunately. http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/events/2015TrainingWorkshop/ Apart from that, there is training material online: IDV Home Page http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/software/idv/ where you can download the tool. Training videos: http://goo.gl/n0Frpb Workshop guide http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/software/idv/docs/workshop/ User manual http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/software/idv/docs/userguide/ Hope this helps. Let us know if you have any other specific inquiries.
