Panoply is an utility that enable user to plot raster image. Depending on the data, it can draw global longitude-latitude images or pole-to-pole latitude-vertical images.
This program can also help you view the files created by NetCDF or other equivalent libraries.
Here are some key features of "Panoply":
· Slice specific latitude-longitude or latitude-vertical arrays from larger multidimensional variables
· Combine two arrays in one plot by differencing, summing or averaging
· Plot longitude-latitude data as global maps or zonal averages
· Plot longitude-latitude data using any of over 40 global map projections, or just plot a particular region
· Overlay continent outlines or masks on longitude-latitude plots
· Use any PAL, ACT or CWC color table for scale colorbar
· Save plots to disk in GIF, PDF, PNG or PS form
