ParaView is a parallel visualization software package. It is useful for rendering 3D images.

See Visualization for details on running ParaView on netcdf files of SPINS outputs.

See Paraview tutorial for a short tutorial, or Lab visualization tutorial for a shorter, more lab-centered tutorial.

Random notes:

  • The lights are relative to the location of the camera not the grid. So when you move the camera, the lights move too.
  • Paraview reads the x coordinates of netCDF files in the opposite order they're meant, so multiply either the x or y axes by -1 (to flip them). In addition, the z axis will often be scaled wrong.
