RPS logo Animation with Visuanalyze

Animation is among the most powerful data visualization tools enabled by the computer. VisuAnalyze provides simple, intuitive methods to animate data. Merely select a range of files, set the color palette, choose a global projection, and generate a quicktime movie.

This example illustrates the growth and dissipation of the Antarctic ozone hole in the spring of 1992. The discontinuity in ozone values seen along the international dateline (just to the east of Australia) is caused by the binning of orbital swaths into daily global files.

In the coming weeks we will publish animations of recent ozone data obtained by TOMS Earth Probe and the Advanced Earth Observing Satellite (ADEOS).
