DIAL NO2 Desktop Data Explorer Prototype
LATEST VERSION AVAILABLE: Alpha 007. November 9 2007
We are looking for Alpha Testers: Send me an email (bruce at nmri.org) with your snail mail address, and we will mail you one. thanks
Goal: To gather existing NO2 data archives into a single DVD-based data explorer software product so that scientists, data providers, application developers, and decision makers can explore not only the existing data corpus (or a representative sample) but also the potential use cases for data analysis by decision makers. NOTE: this is not a final product for use by decision makers, but a prototype that helps move the conversation along among the various stakeholders in the NO2 data system.
Technology: DIAL will combine run-time IDL data analysis and visualization tools with Adobe Director GUI authoring to create the prototype application.
Alpha 007 includes:
ALL available OMI NO2 daily total column and tropospherical data for lower 48 state US. (up to October 30, 2007) [Source: GSFC Data Pool/AURA science team] VIEWER: View and subset single dates or ranges of dates ANIMATE: Choose the overall date range and animate through your choice of days, weeks, etc. GRAPH: Look at changes in the average NO2 value for any part of the US over any date range COMPARE: compare a date or range for any part of the US with monthly, seasonal, annual, or total NO2 values across the entire OMI data set. Find anomalies
