This website provides information on the NCAR Command Language and NCR Graphics. The NCAR Command Language (NCL) is a programming language designed specifically for the access, analysis, and visualization of data. NCL can be run in interactive mode, where each line is interpreted as it is entered at your workstation, or it can be run in batch mode as an interpreter of complete scripts. NCAR Graphics, a time-tested UNIX package, consists of over two dozen Fortran/C utilities for drawing contours, maps, vectors, streamlines, weather maps, surfaces, histograms, X/Y plots, annotations, and more. NCL is available for free in binary format for several UNIX systems. This site contains links to the NCL and NCAR graphics homepages, download and purchase information for NCL and NCAR graphics as well as NCL and NCAR email support groups.
