Met.3D - Interactive 3D visualization of meteorological (ensemble) simulations

Met.3D is an open-source visualisation tool for interactive, three-dimensional visualisation of numerical ensemble weather predictions and similar numerical atmospheric model datasets. Met.3D uses state-of-the-art computer graphics technology and implements a number of recently proposed ensemble visualization methods to facilitate interactive 3D visual data analysis in a novel way.


Met.3D is developed at the Computer Graphics & Visualization Group in the Department of Informatics of the Technical University of Munich (TUM), Germany. The development was partly funded by the European Union under the ERC Advanced Grant 291372 SaferVis. Currently, we receive funding from the ERC Proof-of-Concept Grant "Vis4Weather" and the German Collaborative Research Centre Waves to Weather (see the W2W Cross-Cutting Activity "Visualization").

The tool is intended to be used as a visualization tool in the atmospheric sciences, as well as to facilitate research on visualization in meteorology.

We hope you find the tool useful for your work. Please let us know about your experiences.
