Subject: VIS-AD available by anonymous ftp for sci. vis.
Date: Wed Sep 21 11:31:02 EDT 1994
Organization: University of WI, Madison -- Computer Sciences Dept.
The VIS-AD system for interactively visualizing and steering
scientific computations is freely available by anonymous ftp.
This system provides:
* An interactive computational environment combining a flexible
interpreted language with linkages to Fortran and C.
* A data model that lets users design data types appropriate
to their applications.
* A novel and flexible way to visualize computations.
VIS-AD includes a large number of example programs and data sets
that demonstrate its flexibility. While it has been developed
primarily to meet the needs of environmental scientists, its
flexibility makes it useful to any scientists who develop
algorithms or use computers to analyze data.
Version 1.1 adds support for a greater variety of map projections
than were available under Version 1.0, and support for user-defined
map projections (in VIS-AD these are called sample sets and are
finite samplings of 1-D, 2-D or 3-D real spaces).
Version 1.1 of VIS-AD runs on Silicon Graphics workstation.
Later versions will be ported to other vendors' workstations.
To get VIS-AD by anonymous ftp:
% ftp iris.ssec.wisc.edu
% ftp 188.8.131.52
ftp> cd pub/visad
ftp> get README
ftp> get visad.1.1.tar.Z
See section 2 of the README file for complete
The ftp distribution includes:
Complete source code and makefiles
(the system is also available as executable files)
Documentation and on-line help facility
A large number of demo programs and data sets
Built-in functions for reading McIDAS data files
Support for importing data from other file formats
Support for linking with software written in C and Fortran
