The WebWinds Interactive Data System

  1. 1. The WebWinds Interactive Data System WebWinds, the successor to LinkWinds, is an interactive science data visualization system. WebWinds is written in Java, is available for all major computer platforms and is based on LinkWinds in that it inherits LinkWinds functionality. Because it is written in Java, WebWinds is modular, allowing flexibility in tool construction and application. It is also largely platform and operating system independent so that it functions efficiently in today's heterogeneous environment. Ultimately, it will be user extensible, allow internetbased distributed processing and will be designed to fulfill the needs of data providers as well as data consumers.
  2. 2. The WebWinds user interface uses a direct manipulation approach in that it employs continuous representation of displays and controls requiring physical actions rather than complex syntax. The benefits of this approach are that it allows rapid response to operations with immediately visible effects. Currently, the main features of WebWinds are: * The ability to present and manipulate 2 and 3 dimensional data in a variety of 1 and 2 dimensional display tools * The ability to subset and subsample data on input or display output, making it possible to handle very large data sets. * Simultaneous display and analysis of multiple data sets which may be totally unrelated. * Interactive color manipulation. * The ability to act as a Web browser helper application, making it possible to survey scientific data archives in interactive mode.
