Earth sciences graphics software

Earth sciencs graphics software - plotting and image processing software used in atmospheric sciences, meteorology, climatology, oceanography and other Earth science disciplines.

Earth sciences graphics software includes capability to read specialized data formats such as netCDF, HDR, and GRIB. Such software is sometimes capable to access the data from remote data centers. Satellite data processing, analysis of output from complex meteorological models, display of time series of data are examples of applications. Graphics capabilities include simple line plots, to complex three dimensional visualizations.

This type of graphics software is often used to display results from earth sciences .
