We will present our recent visualization research using Met.3D (3D frontal structures and interactive ensemble sensitivity) at IEEE VIS 2018 in Berlin. Meet us there!
Release Candidate for Version 1.4
by Marc Rautenhaus (comments: 0)
We are happy to announce a release candidate for a new Met.3D version 1.4! New features include:
- Computation of 3D trajectories (path lines) and streamlines. The trajectory actor now allows to connect to "seed" actors (that can be poles, 2D sections, a 3D bounding box), from which trajectories or streamlines can be computed. If the seed actor is changed, the trajectories are updated, allowing for interactive analysis.
- Revised dataset and configuration handling. Met.3D now starts without any configuration files (pipeline/frontend) specified (although they still can be specified) in a default mode; datasets can be loaded from the user interface (Menu "File").
- Support is now integrated to read ensemble data from NetCDF files that is structured such that each member is stored in a separate file, without a dedicated ensemble dimension.
- Many bugfixes and small usability improvements, see the issue tracker.

A release candidate for a new version 1.4 is available, adding support for trajectory computation within Met.3D.
An image created with Met.3D appears on the front cover of the May 2018 issue of the "Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society".
