MBARI SoftwareMBARI science and engineering staff often write software to assist in their projects.
This page provides links to any such programs that we are making available for download.
A package for the processing and display of data from swath mapping sonars
A classroom tool for visualizing the processes controlling coral reef development and demise
- Shore Side Data System
(Future distribution) A software system for managing and presenting numerous and diverse data sets.
Software Infrastructure and Applications for MOOS ("SIAM")
A framework for seamless integration of self-describing, plug-and-work instruments into the Monterey Ocean Observatory System, remote instrument control from shore, data acquisition and telemetry, autonomous system management, and autonomous event detection and response.
- nctoolboxa Matlab toolbox that provides read-only access to common data model datasets. Under the hood, nctoolbox uses NetCDF-Java as the data access layer. This allows nctoolbox to access NetCDF, OPeNDAP, HDF5, GRIB, GRIB2, HDF4 and many (15+) other file formats and services using the same API. It works with Matlab 2008a and later.
- Video Annotation and Reference System (VARS)The Video Annotation and Reference System (VARS) is a software interface and database system that provides tools for describing, cataloging, retrieving, and viewing the visual, descriptive, and quantitative data associated with MBARI's deep-sea video archives.
