Getting the toolbox
The free and open source Matlab ODV toolbox can be downloaded from
https://svn.oss.deltares.nl/repos/openearthtools/trunk/matlab/applications/OceanDataView/ when you join openearth, download the tools with SubVersion and add them to your Matlab path. Subsequently
will show the contents
ODV meta-data csv
odv_metadata.m reads the meta-data csv file, and constructs the urls to the CDI.
ODV file loading, merging and parsing
odvread.m loads an odv file, and resolves the P01 parameter codes and P06 units, and return one struct
odv_merge.m merges one parameter from multiple odv files into one struct. This type of information is suited for modellers.
P01 parses the P01.xml, stored it as a mat cache for fats and offline use, and resolves the P01
odvplot_overview.m plots a map of an ODV file with trajectory.
odvplot_overview_kml.m does that in kml format (Google Earth).
odvplot_cast.m plots vertical profiles of one ODV file with profile information.
This toolbox has been developed since April 2009 as part of the Deltares in kind contribution to the NODC of the Netherlands. Early 2014 small fixes were made as part of the EMODnet Chemistry 2 project to handle the BODC/SeaDataNet transition from the P011 to the P01 vocabulary.
