Main / Space-Time Analysis of Regional Systems

ΔSTARS Spatial Roaming What is STARS? Space-Time Analysis of Regional Systems (STARS) is an open source package designed for the analysis of areal data measured over time. STARS brings together a number of recently developed methods of space-time analysis into a user-friendly graphical environment offering an array of dynamically linked graphical views. It is intended to be used as an exploratory data analysis tool. Exploring STARS You can get an overview of STARS by visiting the screenshot page. News A new home for STARS. Version 0.8.2 of STARS is released. Support Research and development of STARS has been partially supported by: GRASS GIS - The World Leading Free Software GIS. GrADS Home Page. The Grid Analysis and Display System (GrADS) is an interactive desktop tool that is used for easy access, manipulation, and visualization of earth science data.

GrADS has two data models for handling gridded and station data. GrADS supports many data file formats, including binary (stream or sequential), GRIB (version 1 and 2), NetCDF, HDF (version 4 and 5), and BUFR (for station data). GrADS has been implemented worldwide on a variety of commonly used operating systems and is freely distributed over the Internet. GrADS uses a 5-Dimensional data environment: the four conventional dimensions (longitude, latitude, vertical level, and time) plus an optional 5th dimension for grids that is generally implemented but designed to be used for ensembles. Data sets are placed within the 5-D space by use of a data descriptor file. GrADS has a programmable interface (scripting language) that allows for sophisticated analysis and display applications.

The grids can be of any color or size and are fully scalable and designable with secondary grids. Styles for the grids as well for the secondary grids. Grids can be drawn on top of objects. : quick and handy way to make your map look like an antique! : All polygon objects can be filled with a bitmap pattern (Black and White only). Pre-configured numbers of 500%, 400%, 300%, 200%, 150%, 100%, 75%, 50%, 25%,10%, "Fit" . : enables you to easily return the map display to a known state. . : Snap-to-grid and snap-to-point : Move, scale, rotate, skew, flip, align, and array create transformations support: 20 levels by default.

For special symbols or for tracing scanned images for precise alignment (optional) : this is intended to provide a quick mean to align different objects together. . , a random name generator.

World Wind JAVA SDK

With this, developers can embed World Wind technology in their own applications. Many resources are available at to help you understand and use World Wind. Current releases: The latest formal release is 2.0 The primary difference between the two releases is that version 2.0 uses JOGL 2 whereas version 1.5.1 uses JOGL 1. The appropriate JOGL libraries are included within each release; it's not necessary to obtain them separately. Developer links: Requirements: a 3D video card with updated drivers is necessary. Note: Update your video card drivers.
