What is Metview

Metview is a meteorological workstation application designed to be a complete working environment for both the operational and research meteorologist. Its capabilities include powerful data access, processing and visualisation.

It features a powerful icon-based user interface for interactive work, and a scripting language for batch processing. The two are linked through the ability to automatically convert icons into their equivalent script code.

Metview can take input data from a variety of sources, including:

  • GRIB files (editions 1 and 2)
  • BUFR files
  • MARS (ECMWF's meteorological archive)
  • ODB (Observation Database)
  • Local databases
  • ASCII data files (CSV, grids and scattered data)
  • NetCDF

Powerful data filtering and processing facilities are then available, and if graphics output is desired, then Metview can produce many plot types, including:

  • map views in various projections
  • cross sections
  • vertical profiles
  • x/y graph plots
  • intelligent overlay of data from various sources on the same map
  • arrangement of multiple plots on the same page

Metview was developed as part of a cooperation between ECMWF and INPE/CPTEC (Brazilian National Institute for Space Research / Centre for Weather Forecasts and Climate Studies).
