ProfileAlongTrack Controls

The ProfileAlongTrack display controls are used to display CALIPSO (Cloud-Aerosol Lidar and Infrared Pathfinder Satellite Observation), CloudSat, and HSRL2 (High Spectral Resolution Lidar 2) lidar data, including backscatter and reflectivity. These lidar files should be loaded through the General->Files/Directories chooser with the HYDRA data source Data Type. There are a variety of formats of these data. Below is a sample list of file names from each satellite/instrument that are currently supported:

Once the data source has been added to the Field Selector and a field has been selected, a Track subsetting tab will appear that allows for setting several options for the display of the data:

Dependent on the field selected to be displayed, the Layer Controls tab of the Data Explorer may have only a Settings tab or tabs for both Settings and Display.
