[IDV #SEP-967984]: WMS for forecasts of rain and temperature


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


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/

Hope this helps. Let us know if you have any other specific inquiries.
