Evaluation of Coastal and Ocean Models

If you are writing custom scripts to evaluate coastal and ocean models you know how tedious and time consuming it can be. You may also be chewing up a significant amount of time fine tuning and exporting plots for presentations.

There is a better way!

Visualization and Analysis with Tecplot 360

Tecplot 360 is a highly interactive and flexible tool that helps get you through the “last mile” by delivering top-quality and easily adjustable plots. It cuts out the tedium of scripting so you can get your work done faster. Creating plots with your eyes instead of your keyboard is so much easier.

Tecplot 360 includes the popular FVCOM loader which has the ability to insert georeferenced images. Georeferenced images put your data in context. Tecplot 360 will position and scale your georeferenced Google Earth or Bing Maps image automatically.

Tecplot 360 performs standard analyses, such as transect, isosurface and vertical profiles. Memory and speed optimizations are built in. And it is available on Windows, Mac and Linux platforms.

Additional modules allow you to manage and analyze multiple simulation runs, automate scripts with Python, and manipulate large, remote models. Learn more about Tecplot 360.
