Welcome to TOVAS, a member of the Giovanni (GES-DISC Interactive Online Visualization ANd aNalysis Infrastructure) family, which provides users with an easy-to-use, Web-based interface for the visualization and analysis of global precipitation data.

 

Welcome to TOVAS, a member of the Giovanni (GES-DISC (Goddard Earth Sciences Data and Information Services Center) Interactive Online Visualization ANd aNalysis Infrastructure) family, which provides users with an easy-to-use, Web-based interface for the visualization and analysis of global precipitation data. See the FAQ for further usage on this tool.
 
Note: If you used the previous version of TOVAS, please read the following important changes:
 

1) The way to obtain a map for precipitation accumulated over a period has been changed in the new TOVAS. To obtain such map, select "accumulated_precipitation" from the parameter list and "Lat-Lon map, Time-accumulated" from "Select Visualization."

2) The "Lat-Lon map, Time accumulated" service is intended only for this parameter, "accumulated precipitation" or the like. Using it for other parameters may not make physical sense.

3) New output formats: HDF, NetCDF, ASCII, and Google Earth KMZ.

TMPA Subset ASCII Service

If you are interested in subsetting and converting to ASCII the TMPA data, we have developed a new service that allows you to accomplish this through a URL call. Below is a sample of a URL and the required inputs:

http://disc2.nascom.nasa.gov/daac-bin/OTF/HTTP_services.cgi?SERVICE=TRMM_ASCII&BBOX=2,-54,21,-14&TIME=2012-03-31T21:00:00%2F2012-03-31T21:00:00&FLAGS=3B42_V7,Area&SHORTNAME=3B42_V7&VARIABLES=Rain

Here are the acceptable inputs:

SERVICE=TRMM_ASCII

BBOX=slat,wlon,nlat,elon

TIME=STARTTIME%2FENDTIME     (please retain the same format of YYYY-MM-DDTHH:MM:SS)

FLAGS=Product_version,Plot type   (plot type is ‘Area’ or ‘Time’, see next line for acceptable Product_version)

SHORTNAME=Product_version (acceptable values are the following: 3B42RT_V7, 3B42RT_Daily, 3B42_V6_Daily, 3B42_V6, 3B43_V6, 3B42_V7, 3B42_V7_Daily, 3B43_V7)

VARIABLES=variable (acceptable values is ‘Rain’ or ‘AccRain’)

 

 


Continued improvement of this online tool, and the production and dissemination of these data sets, depends on your (our users) informing us on how you have used this tool and these data. We are particularly interested in the value of this tool and these data sets to your research. Please send your comments to help-disc@listserv.gsfc.nasa.gov.
