With CodesUI it is possible to:
- inspect the overall structure of GRIB and BUFR files
- examine the data and metadata of the individual messages
For BUFR data these additional features are also available:
- filtering BUFR messages
- extracting tabular data from BUFR messages
- plotting BUFR observation locations on an interactive map
Please note that although CodesUI has some basic plotting capabilities it is not a visualisation system.
You can install CodesUI from conda with:
Alternatively, you can build it from source (see instructions here).
CodesUI shares its codebase with the GRIB and BUFR examiners of the Metview meteorological workstation system.
It was packaged as a standalone software application with the minimum possible dependencies requiring only ecCodes and Qt5/Qt6 for installation.
