Project Description: A picture is worth a thousand words. Visualization of scientific data makes the task of reading large volumes of data, finding the changes that happen in real time and understanding them much easier compared to number representation. This paper talks about a tool designed to prediodically monitor a given parameter in the bay. The tool collects the data pertaining to the parameter from the stations in the bay in real time and interpolates the values of the entire bay and then converts these values into images in real time. This tool can be further used to explore attributes such as water depth, water speed, Wind Direction, Salinity, etc by retrieving the information from the stations and using it to show the visualization of the data.
