VAPOR - the Visualization and Analysis Platform for Ocean, Atmosphere, and Solar Researchers

VAPOR provides an interactive 3D visualization environment that can also produce animations and still frame images. The VAPOR Data Collection (VDC) data model allows users to progressively access the fidelity of their data, allowing for the visualization of terascale data sets. VAPOR can also directly import data formats including WRF, MOM, POP, ROMS, and some GRIB and NetCDF files.

Users can perform ad-hoc analysis with VAPOR's interactive Python interpreter; which allows for the creation, modification, and visualization of new variables based on input model data.
