(SOLVED) plotgrid.exe: Command not found

Post by Hossan » Wed Oct 23, 2019 4:16 pm

Hello,
I am installing WRFV4 by following instructions from http://www2.mmm.ucar.edu/wrf/OnLineTuto ... torial.php .
Every .exe file compiled as instructed in tutorial. But when I tried to give a demo run: in geogrid I tried to see my domain by using ./util/plotgrid.exe.

I realized by looking at util folder, plotgrid.exe was not created during the installation process.

Could you please help me?

Thanks in advance

plotgrid.exe is an old utility for visualizing the data. Its installation depends on NCAR GRAPHIC package, which often causes problem for the building of plotgridx.exe. Note that It doesn't affect the WPS function. We provide new capabilities to visualize the data, like plot grids.ncl, etc.
