New version of Swarm VirES now available to users

22 December 2016

VirEs for Swarm is a highly interactive data analysis and retrieval interface for the Swarm products. This new version (v1.2) implements the following new features:

  • Resume session: Upon termination of your session, information about the view, time window, area, data and filter selections and all corresponding settings will be stored for your convenience. Upon restart of the service, your session will be resumed where you left off.
  • Easier navigation over time: you can navigate through time via the time-bar and now also via a "time window" where you can directly select your date of interest
  • Enhanced data download: In addition to filtering Swarm products by a wide range of parameters when downloading, you can now filter also on time.
  • New overlay layers: Three new overlays are available:
    • Coastlines and Countries: Black coastlines with light grey country borders
    • Graticules: Grid lines for geographic longitude/latitude
    • Magnetic graticules: Grid lines for magnetic longitude/latitude
  • Additional colour scales: It is now possible to choose between 27 scales to plot parameters on the globe/map
