Visualization Mapping of Ionospheric Electrodynamics
ASTRA relies heavily on the visualization tools that they develop. Visualizations of data and models aid in cognition, hypotheses building, and reasoning, allowing ASTRA to do high quality scientific research.
Most of ASTRA’s visualizations are created using ITT’s IDL visualization software http://www.ittvis.com/idl/
