ExodusIIReader

Read an Exodus II file to produce an unstructured grid.

The Exodus reader loads Exodus II files and produces an unstructured grid output. The default file extensions are .g, .e, .ex2, .ex2v2, .exo, .gen, .exoII, .exii, .0, .00, .000, and .0000. The file format is described fully at: http://endo.sandia.gov/SEACAS/Documentation/exodusII.pdf.

Each Exodus file contains a single set of points with 2D or 3D coordinates plus one or more blocks, sets, and maps. Block group elements (or their bounding edges or faces) of the same type together. Sets select subsets (across all the blocks in a file) of elements, sides of elements (which may be of mixed dimensionality), bounding faces of volumetric elements, or bounding edges of volumetric or areal elements. Each block or set may have multiple result variables, each of which defines a value per element, per timestep.

The elements (cells), faces of elements (when enumerated in face blocks), edges of elements (when enumerated in edge blocks), and nodes (points) in a file may be assigned an arbitrary integer number by an element map, face map, edge map, or node map, respectively. Usually, only a single map of each type exists and is employed to assign a unique global ID to entities across multiple files which partition a large mesh for a distributed-memory calculation. However here may be multiply maps of each type and there are no constraints which force the integers to be unique.

The connectivity of elements is constant across all of the timesteps in any single Exodus II file. However, multiple files which specify a single time-evolution of a mesh may be used to represent meshes which exhibit changes in connectivity infrequently.

Property Description Default Value(s) Restrictions
File Name
(FileName)

1

Only the values 0 and 1 are accepted.


Apply Displacements
(ApplyDisplacements)

Geometric locations can include displacements. When this option is on, the nodal positions are 'displaced' by the standard exodus displacement vector. If displacements are turned 'off', the user can explicitly add them by applying a warp filter.

1

Only the values 0 and 1 are accepted.


Displacement Magnitude
(DisplacementMagnitude)

When displacements are being applied, they are scaled by this amount. Set to 1 for no scaling.

NetCDF MPAS reader

Read unstructured grid MPAS data from a file.

This reader reads unstructured grid MPAS data from a file. It creates a dual grid and assumes the grid is in the global domain. By default, it creates a spherical view of vertical layer 0. It assumes it is ocean data. It gives several options to change the view to multilayer (all vertical layers will have a thickness determined by the value in the slider), lat/lon projection or atmospheric (vertical layers go out away from the center of the sphere, instead of down towards the center as they do for ocean data). It doesn't handle data in the rectangular domain. This is not a parallel reader. It expects one .nc file of data. It can display cell or vertex-centered data, but not edge data. When converted to the dual grid, cell-centered data becomes vertex-centered and vice-versa.

NOTES:
When using this reader, it is important that you remember to do the following:
1. When changing a selected variable, remember to select it also in the drop-down box to color by. It doesn't color by that variable automatically.
2. When selecting multilayer sphere view, start with layer thickness around 100,000.
3. When selecting multilayer lat/lon view, start with layer thickness around 10.
4. Always click the -Z orientation after making a switch from lat/lon to sphere, from single to multilayer or changing thickness.
5. Be conservative on the number of changes you make before hitting Apply, since there may be bugs in this reader. Just make one change and then hit Apply.

NetCDF POP reader

Read raw, regular, rectilinear grid data from a file. The dimensions and type of the data must be specified.

The Image reader reads raw regular rectilinear grid (image/volume) data from a file. Because no metadata is provided, the user must specify information about the size, spacing, dimensionality, etc. about the dataset.

Property Description Default Value(s) Restrictions

The list of array names is provided by the reader.



NetCDF Reader

Read regular arrays from netCDF files. Will also read any topological information specified by the COARDS and CF conventions.

Reads arrays from netCDF files into structured VTK data sets. In the absence of any other information, the files will be read as image data. This reader will also look for meta information specified by the CF convention that specify things like topology and time. This information can cause the output to be a nonuniform rectilinear grid or curvilinear (structured) grid. Details on the CF convention can be found at http://cf-pcmdi.llnl.gov/. It should be noted that the CF convention is a superset of the COARDS convention, so COARDS conventions will also be recognized.

Property Description Default Value(s) Restrictions
File Name
(FileName)

The name of the files to load.

Dimensions
(Dimensions)

Load the grid with the given dimensions. Any arrays that conform to these dimensions will be loaded.

Replace Fill Value With Nan
(ReplaceFillValueWithNan)

If on, any float or double variable read that has a _FillValue attribute will have that fill value replaced with a not-a-number (NaN) value. The advantage of setting these to NaN values is that, if implemented properly by the system and careful math operations are used, they can implicitly be ignored by calculations like finding the range of the values. That said, this option should be used with caution as VTK does not fully support NaN values and therefore odd calculations may occur.

0

Only the values 0 and 1 are accepted.


Spherical Coordinates
(SphericalCoordinates)

If on, then data with latitude/longitude dimensions will be read in as curvilinear data shaped like spherical coordinates. If false, then the data will always be read in Cartesian coordinates.

Vertical Bias
(VerticalBias)

The bias of the vertical component of spherical coordinates. It is common to write the vertical component with respect to something other than the center of the sphere (for example, the surface). In this case, it might be necessary to scale and/or bias the vertical height. The height will become height*scale + bias. Keep in mind that if the positive attribute of the vertical dimension is down, then the height is negated. The scaling will be adjusted if it results in invalid (negative) vertical values.

0
Vertical Scale
(VerticalScale)

The scale of the vertical component of spherical coordinates. It is common to write the vertical component with respect to something other than the center of the sphere (for example, the surface). In this case, it might be necessary to scale and/or bias the vertical height. The height will become height*scale + bias. Keep in mind that if the positive attribute of the vertical dimension is down, then the height is negated. The scaling will be adjusted if it results in invalid (negative) vertical values.
