GLIDERSCOPE : Data Visualisation Software
GLIDERSCOPE is an Australian National Facility for Ocean Gliders (ANFOG) Windows platform software package designed to allow users quick and easy visualisation of ANFOG’s oceanographic data, via a convenient graphical user interface. In accordance to IMOS data file convention, ANFOG data formats are based on NetCDF (Network Common Data Form). All of the scientific data are stored with appropriate quality control flags indicating the usability/validity of each data-entry. Although highly informational, NetCDF files can be quite daunting for those who are unfamiliar with the format, or lack the computing set-up to access the data.
By using the GLIDERSCOPE software, all users will be able to access the NetCDF files, filter out the bad data and apply a variety of useful data graphical visualisation techniques to examine the data, e.g. using three/four-dimensional plots of water properties, interpolated contour charts, vertical profile plots, water properties comparison charts, etc. Users can easily choose and extract segments of data. Additionally, users can also export their data to text files for easy access in other applications.
This software runs on the Windows 64-bit or 32-bit Platforms. Although a standalone executable program, it does require that your computer has Matlab Component Runtime (MCR) version 7. If you already have it installed in your machine, simply run ANFOG_GLIDERSCOPE.exe directly.
If you do not already have MATLAB Component Runtime (MCR) version 7 installed in your computer, first copy the installation package ANFOG_GLIDERSCOPE_pkg.exe onto your computer and run it. You only need to do this once. Subsequently, you will be able to run ANFOG_GLIDERSCOPE.exe directly
