EPIC X-Motif Point-and Click Interface - 4dedit

4dEdit is a highly interactive four-dimensional utility which allows a user to graphically view the locations of selected data sets in space and time, and then refine the selection in the same interactive, point-and-click, graphical environment. This is a very elegant solution to the problem any user faces when selecting a large number of data sets from large data collections, such as historical atlases of in-situ oceanographic data.
4dEdic Features:
  • Display meta data the in upto 6 Cut Panels at user's choice. (Each Cut Panelis a two-dimensional slice of a four-dimensional region (x,y,z,t). All data in the Selection Region perpendicular to the panel is projected onto the Cut Panel.)
  • Horizonal and Vertical axis region selection control
  • Zooming function
  • Delete or Retain selected region
  • User Property setting
  • User application configuration
