Dear ODV User:
Version 4.3.8 of Ocean Data View is now available for download from http://odv.awi.de/en/software/download/ (Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, Solaris-i386).
Please see below for a list of recent changes.
***ODV4 Release 4.3.8 (Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, Solaris-i386) Feb/01/2011:
-- New "Export>WOCE>Bottle" and "Export>WOCE>CTD" options allow
exporting the current stations to WOCE WHP exchange file(s).
-- The "Import>SDN Spreadsheet" option has been updated and improved.
-- Column labels in ODV spreadsheet files may now have extended
qualifiers of the form
":PRIMARYVAR:<valueType>:<valueBytes>:<SchemaID>", now allowing to
specify a specific quality flag scheme SchemaID (e.g., ARGO, etc.)
in addition to a specific value type (e.g., DOUBLE, etc.).
-- Import of spreadsheet files with column labels and units on
separate lines is now supported.
-- OCEANSITES quality flags now supported. Quality flag mappings
to/from WOCEBOTTLE, WOCECTD, and WOCESAMPLE flags "5" and "9"
changed. Some quality codes of the BODC, PANGAEA and SMHI schemes
changed; existing ODV collections using BODC, PANGAEA or SMHI
quality flags may no longer work. New mapping tables are available
on the "Documentation" pages of the ODV website.
-- New derived variable "Spiciness". Reference: Flament 2002, Progress
in Oceanography 54 (1-4), 493-501.
-- Simplified and improved map layer selections in "Automatic" mode.
-- The "Extras>2D Estimation" option now sets Z values at points
outside the window domain or in regions exceeding the window's
quality limit (white areas in the plot) to -1.e10.
-- On Mac OSX systems .odv and .var files are now automatically
associated with the ODV application. You can now invoke ODV on a
particular data collection by double-clicking in the Finder on the
respective .odv or .var file.
-- New default Odv.pal color palette with slightly different map
colors. The previous default palette is still available as
-- Fixed crash when adding a Macro derived variable.
-- Fixed "Collection>Identify Key Variables>Undo All" crash.
-- Fixed bug when modifying a map data window to non-map data window.
-- Fixed erroneous carbon parameter calculations with "Millero /
Mehrbach" equilibrium constants.
-- Fixed issues with repainting after animations or aborted Sort and
-- Fixed issue with AOU calculation for Oxygen values equal to zero.
-- Fixed issue of erroneous first point when defining a station
selection polygon on Mac X systems.
