Versions available: 2.8.5

Licences: Freeware

Panoply is a cross-platform application which plots geo-gridded arrays from netCDF, HDF and GRIB datasets. You can:

  • Slice and plot specific latitude-longitude, latitude-vertical, or time-latitude arrays from larger multidimensional variables.
  • Combine two arrays in one plot by differencing, summing or averaging.
  • Plot lon-lat data on a global or regional map (using any of over 75 map projections) or make a zonal average lineplot.
  • Overlay continent outlines or masks on lon-lat plots.
  • Use any ACT, CPT, GGR, or PAL color table for scale colorbar.
  • Save plots to disk GIF, JPEG, PNG or TIFF bitmap images or as PDF or PostScript graphics files.
  • Export lon-lat map plots in KMZ format.
