This is the primary program to view aircraft time-series data. It works with low-rate and high rate netCDF data files, plots Time series, XY and XYZ, ascii, spectral analysis, save PNG screenshots, print PostScript and save encapsulated PostScript for publication.  Requires netCDF3.0 or later and Motif GUI toolkit.  The new display program AEROS is our next generation display, but does not offer all the features of ncplot yet (e.g. spectral analysis).
