XyGrib is a Grib file reader and visualizes meteorological data providing an off-line capability to analyse weather forecasts or hindcasts. The XyGrib software is released as open source under the GPLv3 License.
It is intended to be used as a capable weather work station for anyone with a serious interest in examining weather. This would include members of the sailing community, private and sport aviators, farmers, weather buffs and many more.
XyGrib is the continuation of the zyGrib software package with a new team of volunteers.
- Supports multiple Grib sources
- Integrated download client
- Integrated background chart with gshhs
