ADPAA is a software package for processing and analyzing data obtain from scientific instruments deployed on airborne platforms. Measured parameters are typically provided in ASCII text and/or NetCDF file formats. The ASCII text file format includes metadata in the file header. Customized cross-platform software (cplot and cplot2 ) is freely available to quickly display and analyze the data files. All processing software is open source to allow scientists to understand how all parameters are determined.
Features of the ADPAA software Package:
- Open Source since November 2008
- Four Developers (including 2 former undergraduates)
- Automated system that enables preliminary data to be generated shortly after each flight.
- GNU (General Public License) version, 3, 29 June 2007
