VAPOR enables interactive exploration of gridded data sets that are large in both the spatial and temporal domains. Wavelet-based multiresolution data representation permits users to make speed/quality tradeoffs for visual as well as non-visual data exploration tasks
Tools and translators to facilitate importing data output by the WRF-ARW community model.
VAPOR provides first class support for data that evolve over time
Highly interactive direct volume rendering enables rapid identification of spatial/temporal regions of interest
Isosurfaces are constructed and rendered on the Graphics Processor
Interactively visualize unsteady and steady 3D flow fields
A 2D data probe that can be arbitrarily oriented in the data volume
Vapor is closely coupled with (but does not require) Research System Inc.'s Interactive Data Language (IDL), a feature-rich scientific data language offering:
Explore data sets with multiple scalar and vector field variables
The VAPOR graphical user interface contains all the advanced ease-of-use features expected in a professionally developed commercial product, yet rarely found in Open Source software:
