Panoply plots geo-gridded arrays of latitude-longitude, latitude-vertical or time-latitude data encoded in netCDF, HDF and GRIB format. Features include: Slice specific 2D arrays from multidimensional variables which have more than two dimensions. Combine two arrays in one plot by differencing, summing or averaging. Menu of 80+ global and regional map projections for lon-lat plots. Draw continents outlines or masks on lon-lat plots. Apply any CPT, GGR, PAL, or ACT color table for scale colorbar. Save plots to disk using GIF, JPEG, PDF, PNG, PS or TIFF format.

New in version 3.1.8

Switched animation code to use Monte Media Library. Temporary cache directory on Windows and Linux moved; location now based on environment variable values if available. Preferences for saving images and animations now based on last save action. Bugfix: Error in testing validity of lon-lat coordinates if auxiliary lon-lat grid variables specified a valid range. Array independent dimension with length 1 shown with single-choice selector in array selection panel rather than as a simple text label. Bugfix: (Windows) Preference window not wide enough to show last prefs grouping tab. Library: netCDF-Java updated to v. 4.3.16.
