UV-CDAT is a powerful and complete front-end to a rich set of visual-data exploration and analysis capabilities well suited for climate-data analysis problems.
The UV-CDAT team is pleased to announce the release of UV-CDAT version 2.1.0 (v2.1). Thanks to users and testers, this is a major bug fix release and therefore we strongly recommend users upgrade their UV-CDAT executable to v2.1. Currently for this release, we are providing binary distributions for RedHat6/CentOS6, Ubuntu 14.XX, Mac OS X 10.8 and up, and the installation source code. Additional binaries may become available later.
UV-CDAT builds on the following key technologies:
These combined tools, along with others such as the R open-source statistical analysis and plotting software and custom packages (e.g. vtDV3D), form UV-CDAT and provide a synergistic approach to climate modeling, allowing researchers to advance scientific visualization of large-scale climate data sets. The UV-CDAT framework couples powerful software infrastructures through two primary means:
Within both paradigms, UV-CDAT will provide data-provenance capture and mechanisms to support data analysis via the VisTrails infrastructure.
