Maintenance Notice

On Friday, 03/01/2024, the main CCMC website and all CCMC applications will be intermittently unavailable between 7 AM to 11 AM Eastern Time.  The main CCMC website and all CCMC services/applications (e.g., iSWA, Runs-On-Request (ROR), Instant-Run, online visualization services, all Scoreboards, DONKI, CAMEL, StereoCAT, etc.) will be impacted.

Please refrain from submitting run requests via ROR during the maintenance window.

Data and model comparisons

This is the web interface for the visualization of observational data and results of several model run results.

Please review the default selections below and make your changes.

To start the graphics program click the Update Plot button. The resulting image will be displayed at this location of the page.

Should the result be a black image, then the graphics program encountered a programming error. Please report the set of input parameters used.

  Update Plot will update (generate) the plot with the chosen time and plot parameters below.
This will take some time (typically 10-30s) as data are read in and processed.

Character thickness  (all annotations)
Thickeness of Observation Data overplot (0: obs. data appears behind model results) 
New: Logarithmic Y axis  (when log scale is selected, skills are calculated from the logarithm of observation and model values)
New: Apply lower limit to data  Minimum value:
New: Apply upper limit to data  Maximum value:
