Senior Project - WING


An Interactive Window Interface to NCAR Graphics Libraries

Senior Project: 1988-1989
Jay Arnold, Cris Bartholomew, David Wathen and Keith Worfolk
Scientific Computing Division
Boulder, CO

The Scientific Computing Division of NCAR has developed a FORTRAN package called NCAR Graphics, which consists of several subroutine libraries that allow for the production of various forms of scientific graphics, such as maps, contour plots, and streamline and velocity vector plots. The use of this package requires the writing of programs in some suitable language that make use of these libraries to produce the graphics. This project provided an interactive, user-friendly interface to one of these packages, the contour plotting package. Running under the X11 Window System and UNIX and written in C, the software allowed a user to interactively describe the various attributes desired in the contour plot. The code then generated the appropriate calls to the NCAR graphics package to cause the contour plot to be produced.
