There are several versions of the Grid Analysis and Display System ( GrADS ) visualization software available on discover/dali. Some of them were built directly from the source code taken from COLA (builds available in /usr/local/other/ ) and others were installed based on OpenGrADS. We recommend the use of OpenGrADS  because it tends to be more "stable" and offers a wide range of new functions. The GrADS related executables are available at:




You may need to add the following setting:


               setenv GADDIR $SHARE/dasilva/opengrads/dat


To have information on how to use opengrads, type


$SHARE/dasilva/opengrads/Contents/opengrads -h
