Data Visualization Tools
The ISTP Science Planning and Operations Facility ( SPOF) provides
access to pre-generated Survey Plots
of Key Parameter Data.
The ISTP Science Planning and Operations Facility ( SPOF) also provides
the Key Parameter Visualization Tool ( KPVT), and
IDL-based system to access all ISTP KP data. ISTP users may run the KPVT on
the ISTP-CDHF, or they may retrieve the source code via anonymous ftp from the
CDHF or from ISTP website for use at their home institution.
The Coordinated Data Analysis Web (
CDAWeb) System developed by the Space Physics Data Facility provides
interactive plotting, ASCII listings, and data retrieval access (ASCII or
CDF) to the ISTP Key Parameter Data.
The visualization software underlying CDAWeb is also IDL-based, and is
provided via anonymous
Science Planning Tools
For planning of ISTP science operations, the ISTP Science Planning and
Operations Facility uses the Satellite Situation Center Software Tools ( SSC) developed by NSSDC and
CDHF and Related Tools
The ISTP CDHF has a number of software packages and routines available to
aid in the access, use, and analysis of ISTP data products:
Data Formatting Tools
Common Data Format (CDF) was adopted by ISTP for storage of
data products. Below are connections to the generic CDF software and
tools to assist with the creation of data in CDF.
