Description

IDV is a geoscience display and analysis software system with many of the standard data displays that other Unidata software (e.g. GEMPAK and McIDAS) provide. It brings together the ability to display and work with satellite imagery, gridded data (for example, numerical weather prediction model output), surface observations, balloon soundings, NWS WSR-88D Level II and Level III RADAR data, and NOAA National Profiler Network data, all within a unified interface. It also provides 3-D views of the earth system and allows users to interactively slice, dice, and probe the data, creating cross-sections, profiles, animations and value read-outs of multi-dimensional data sets.

Availability

Integrated Data Viewer (IDV) is available in the version 3.1 (via module idv-3.1)

Use

  • tunnelling the graphical display, log into a MetaCentrum frontend:
$ ssh -X skirit.metacentrum.cz
  • run the application either locally on the frontend or (better) on a computing node:
    • running on a computing node:
      • ask the scheduler for an interactive job -- specify the number of processors you intend to use (the "Y" attribute), as well the amount of memory necessary (the "Z" attribute). Do not forget to tunnel the graphical display again via the "-X" option:
$ qsub -I -X -l nodes=1:ppn=Y -l mem=Zg
  • load the application module and run the IDV:
skirit$ module add idv-3.1
skirit$ runIDV  # or: simpleIDV
  • running on a frontend:
  • load the application module and run the IDV:
skirit$ module add idv-3.1
skirit$ runIDV  # or: simpleIDV
