With the help of MeteoExplorer you can discover atmospheric science and geoscience data, load information from file, and export projects to vector images to prepare for various reports or presentations involving weather datasets.
This is a clear-cut and approachable Windows utility that offers support for WMO GRIB1/GRIB2, NetCDF, GrADS and MICAPS file types.
Hassle-free installation and user-friendly interface
After a brief and uneventful setup procedure, you are greeted by a user-friendly interface represented by a common window with a neatly organized structure, where you can explore tools for analyzing physical elements on the surface, wind fields, and isolines of analytical fields.
It’s possible to enter fullscreen mode, zoom in and out, as well as view, delete, hide, modify or reload graphics layers.
Configure settings and save maps as images
Synoptic chart options can be edited when it comes to the contour line color, style, shading scheme, while projection and map settings prone to modifications include type, longitude, latitude, theme, country, shade province, and various items to show, like terrain, scale, cities and grid.
You can start and stop an animation rendering anytime, select the projection mode between Lambert, Mercator, North and South hemisphere, or resort to a synoptic scale and mesoscale toolbox and customize several preferences, such as the level, line color, style and width.
Project can be saved to file and later resumed. Once completed, they can be exported to image files with the BMP, JPEG, PNG, EMF or ICO format.
Evaluation and conclusion
No error dialogs were shown in our tests, and the software application didn’t hang or crash. It had a good response time and minimal impact on computer performance, using low CPU and RAM. Taking into account its straightforward interface and options, MeteoExplorer should come in handy to all users looking to explore atmospheric science and geoscience data.
