ARPS is a Fortran-based format for weather data. arps2vtk includes C code and a Visual Studio project to compile a program that will convert from ARPS format to VTK format. Works on a subset of the ARPS formats. Written by Russ Taylor (firstname.lastname@example.org) based on a data set from Sharon Zhong’s group at Michigan State (part of the MADAI project).
Compiling: Open the included solution file in Visual Studio for Windows. Use the associated Makefile for Cygwin. Delete the Makefile and use “make arps_to_vtk” on Linux.
