Jazz - Data Visualization

Jazz is a Java-based data display designed for scientific use. The display can be used to explore datasets in various data formats (MDV, SPDB, NetCDF, etc) as well as Open Geospatial protocols (WMS, WFS, and WCS). It supports thematic basemaps from Shapefile, WMS, and CIDD Map, as well as multiple feature overlays from WFS and ADDS Dataserver. It slices data in five dimensions: horizontal slices at selectable altitudes over time for selectable model runs and lead times. It is highly customizable through a simple XML configuration file that can be shared with colleagues. It also contains a suite of optional tools for more advanced data analysis and depiction.

The Jazz display is built on top of the RAL-developped JADE toolkit. That toolkit has been used for the ADDS Flight Path Tool and HEMS Tool, ATEC JViz, MDSS display, and several other research displays. The toolkit is still under active development. We welcome your feedback about any of its applications.
