Examples of CDF Applications

Many applications have been created to support the SPDF's Common Data Format (CDF) data standard. CDF can be used in a wide variety of application areas, some of which we have examples below.

Autoplot CDF plot

Sample plot generated with the SPDF COHOWeb World Wide Web (WWW)-based Data System for analyzing and retrieving CDFs remotely. See also SPDF OMNIWeb for another WWW-based Data System. IDL is used by both systems to generated the plots of the CDF data sets.
