|Data Display Tools
||Data at all levels can be displayed on
plots controlled by simple graphical user interfaces. For
example, raw or averaged cross spectra can be plotted in 3D color form
or as time-series/spectral curves. Wave data
have several formats for display. Radial and total current-vector map
algorithms include coastlines and bathymetry
contours, with several full-color options for vector and uncertainty
displays. The latter tools also permit easy creation
of movies over time, and vector density coverage distributions for
diagnosis. Touching the screen with a mouse-click,
for example, gives a numerical value for any vector or uncertainty
at that point.

map. create and modify total vector grid. create
image output. create movies over time.
|Vector display software
||allowing statistical analyses of multiple
current-map data sets and their errors that will
compute statistics (i.e., means, root-mean-square differences, and standard deviations)
over a period of time as user
||is another useful application used to visualize
wave data gathered by CODAR systems. WaveDisplay
can plot wave time series from one range cell or multiple ranges in one display
|Data Transfer Software & Protocols
||Both the central site and radial/remote
sites come equipped with several tools
that facilitate scheduling and executing data transfers. Software (such as Timbuktu)
delivered will also permit
interactive control and transfers between any site to any location in the world.
This software has been refined after
many years and thousands of hours of use.
|Movie making capability
|| that allows users
to make a movie of vector fields or radial velocity maps over any period
for which data were observed.
|Drift and trajectory
calculation and plot display movies.
