Externally released on 2017-02-01
Became metview/new at ECMWF on
 2017-02-01

Version 4.8.1

Externally released on 2017-01-30
Became metview/new at ECMWF on
 2017-01-31
(Linux desktops, ecgate, lxc)

  • At ECMWF:
    • Installed 2017-01-30

    • Built with Magics 2.31.0

    • Built with ecCodes 2.1.0
    • Built with ODB_API version 0.16.1
    • Built with emoslib 000446
  • Macro: added new function to return the unique elements of a vector variable, e.g.

    a = |5, 7, 3, 3, 1, 3, 7|
    u = unique(a)  # u is now |5, 7, 3, 1|

    See Vector Functions.

  • Macro: the date() function now accepts a Julian date as an input number. Julian dates between 0001-01-01 and 4000-01-01 are accepted in Julian notation (1721426 to 3182030). Note that Metview treats Julian dates as starting from midnight, not noon. See Date Functions.
  • Legend: added a new parameter, Legend Symbol Height Factor, to the Legend icon. This is used when plotting small symbols on a chart, and you would like their representation in the legend to be larger - specify a scaling factor here, e.g. use "5" to see the symbols 5 times their chart size in the legend
  • Tephigram: the Thermo View now accepts data of type Input Visualiser
  • GRIB: added support for gridpoint calculations on GRIB data which is in "space view", i.e. satellite projection. This includes functionality of Grib To Geopoints for example. Note: this requires at least ecCodes 2.1.0.
  • Synop: New option in the Observation Plotting icon, OBS_WIND_PROJECTED, which controls whether the wind flag on a synop observation symbol is reprojected according to the map projection or not (default =ON). If OFF, then, for example, a wind flag pointing North will point upwards on the plot, regardless of the map projection - this was the behaviour in previous versions.
  • Macro: fixed issue where the nearest_gridpoint() function would not return a value when given a target point outside the Northern or Southern most latitude band of a grid that is global reduced Gaussian
  • Geopoints to GRIB: fixed issue where it could crash when given geopoints that were outside the Northern or Southern most latitude band of a target grid that is global reduced Gaussian
  • Geopoints to GRIB: fixed the handling of missing values in the "nearest" interpolation modes - Nearest Gridpoint Mean and Nearest Gridpoint Sum now write missing values into the grid points which are not the nearest to any geopoints (previously they wrote zeros into these positions)
  • Percentile: the Percentile module has had its memory usage dramatically reduced
  • Average Data/View: fixed issue where the computation was very slow when working on GRIB data on a reduced Gaussian grid
  • Average Data: the resulting netCDF files from this module always used lon as a variable dimension, even if the computation was for a zonal mean - now the variable uses lat as its dimension in this case
  • Macro: fixed problem in the macro mvl_ml2hPa, which did not work when computing pressure levels < 1hPa with GRIB 1 data
  • Single Column Model: the SCM Visualiser icon had stopped working - it is fixed now
  • NetCDF: fixed issue where the ncdump panel of the NetCDF Examiner was not populated when run on the Leap42 workstations at ECMWF
  • Meteograms: updated settings for communication with ECMWF Meteogram server so that it works with the new firewall configuration
  • ODB Filter: added an option to determine behaviour when the returned dataset is empty. This new option, "FAIL_ON_EMPTY_OUTPUT" has a default of "Yes" and an option of "No", which can be used in a macro to catch this situation programatically
  • Stations: use the latest WMO stations database
  • Macro Editor: increased space available for text editing
  • WMS: made a small adjustment to the WMS Client to make more space for the Extra Param boxes
  • Gallery: updated the Metview Gallery with examples of Cross Section, Hovmoeller and  page layout
