Abstract:

This report describes the input, output, and interactive capabilities of the IRMA plotting program. Actual FORTRAN or C coding is not given. The IRMA program was designed for displaying data, from spacecraft charging and contamination codes, in three dimensions, and in color. The user interface features interactive control of viewing position and perspective by keyboard and mouse input. Text ports are available so that figure captions can be typed directly to the screen. The current graphics state can be saved in a parameter file for later restoration. The many data visualization options include drawing complex polygon objects, displaying particle trajectories, creating contour level surfaces, and building random dot plots to represent number density. Column density images can be obtained by integrating along an arbitrary line of sight. Image files can be written out to create a set of frames depicting the time sequence of events.
