4.0 Data Selection Overview
In the IDV, the process of analyzing and visualizing data takes the following steps:
  1. Loading in a Data Source.
  2. Selecting the parameter or diagnostic formula to use for the display.
  3. Selecting the type of display (and optionally selecting a range of times, levels and spatial subsets).
  4. Creating the display.

In the following sections, we will examine this process in more detail.

4.0.0  Using the Data Source Chooser
The Data Source Chooser is used to load data sets into the IDV.
4.0.1  Using the Field Selector
The Field Selector is used to select data sources, parameters, data times, and types of displays to use for creating visualizations.
4.0.2  Using the Display Controls
Each display has a display control associated with it. A Display Control Window is a panel or window with menus, buttons, sliders, and other widgets to control a display. When a display is first created its display control is added to the Dashboard or pops up in a separate window depending on your configuration. The control also has a legend shown in the View Window's legend panel.
4.0.3  Using the Display Legends
4.0.4  Using the Time Animation Widget
The time animation widget in the IDV can be used to control the properties of a time loop.
