GFS view is the program to generate and display weather forecast maps from the National Centers for Environmental Prediction (NCEP) GFS data
Quick and easy access to instant weather forecast data of the NCEP center
Download many data sets at once: by several days, many issued time and many forecast times, by the variable time step and any combinations of grib code-level-heights. Filter data on the server to save bandwidth, downloading time and a disk space, extensive set of parameters of the NCEP filter tool is implemented.
Wise grib file loading: a grib file is treated as a sequence of the code-level-height planes, loaded separately. So they have different attributes like ramp color tables. Straight forward GIS approach to vector overlays, standard ESRI Shape is used for geography attributes of the surface, orography and so on. Each shape-file has own visual parameters like line and text color, line style, etc.
