Welcome to psy-view!

GUI screenshot

psy-view defines a viewer application for netCDF files, that is highly motivated by the ncview software but entirely built upon the psyplot framework. It supports strucutured and unstructured grids and provides an intuitive graphical user interface to quickly dive into the data inside a netCDF file.


This package is currently under development and we highly appreciate your feedback! Please try it out yourself and, if you would like to see more features, find bugs or want to say anything else, please leave your comments and experiences at https://github.com/psyplot/psy-view/issues or send a mail to psyplot@hzg.de.

  • intuitive GUI to select variables, dimensions, slices, etc. and change the plot

  • automatically decodes CF-conventions and supports unstructured grid, such as ICON or UGRID

  • animation interface

  • different projections

  • implemented in psyplot-gui for full flexibility (if desired)
