Open Source Graphics Packages

NCAR Graphics is a collection of graphics libraries to support the display of scientific data. Key interfaces for visualizing data in NCAR Graphics are the following:

  • Traditional C and Fortran utilities for contouring, mapping, drawing field flows, surfaces, histograms, X/Y plots, annotations and more.
  • NCAR Command Language (NCL) is an interpreted language designed for scientific data analysis and visualization. NCL commands can be executed individually from the command line or scripted and executed in batch mode.

All information on how to access any of the supported libraries is provided in BC Common Capability "Open Source Graphics Packages."
