For the full list of features and bug fixes, read the Release Notes above.

What's New in 2.4

  • Increased efficiency with the updated map control that includes significant improvements to the Map view
  • Added a feature to display base maps in the Map tab alongside with contours of .b3d data extracted from AERMOD archive AMZ files
  • Added the ability to customize legends for the concentration contour plot in Google Earth
  • Improved the plot-to-Surfer function so that when there are concentration contours of different time periods to plot, each time period is plotted to an individual layer in the same plot file instead of creating one plot file for one time period

Results Visualization

  • Import, visualize, and post-process data from AERMOD, CALMET, CALPUFF, Incident Analyst, and other BREEZE software
  • View results in 3D, 2D, as a time series, and in table format
  • Overlay results on basemaps (imported automatically from BREEZE software or basemaps added yourself)
  • Customize graphics easily, choose from: scale bars, map overlays, high-value markers, and contour color scales
  • Visualize contribution of each source to overall concentration with Contribution view
  • Automatically calculate and plot the radius from a source to a threshold concentration
  • Sort data in spreadsheet format with Table view

3D Tools

  • Visualize plumes and wind vectors in 3D for a new level of understanding
  • View 3D isosurfaces and color-filled volumes
  • View horizontal and vertical cross-sections
  • Rotate, zoom, and pan to view results from every angle

Export Options

  • Export results as images (.jpg, .png, .bmp, .gif, .tif)
  • Export animations (.avi) to see results as a function of time
  • Export results as GIS shapefiles
  • Plot results in Google Earth™ (.kmz), Surfer®, or Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) formats

  • Save data and project templates under the BREEZE Application button

Post-Processing Tools

  • Compute averages, percentile values, and high values
  • Calculate data transformations (e.g. multiply by or add a constant)
  • Find all values that exceed a specified threshold
  • Merge (add, multiply, etc.) or combine together multiple data files
  • Automate common workflows with Data Flowchart utility
  • Conduct source contribution analyses with Contribution tools

Seamless Integration with BREEZE Models

Just finished a model run in a BREEZE application? In just one click you can import your results, save a report figure, combine with an earlier run, or export to Google Earth. In addition, all of the map images, AutoCAD files, and shapefiles you loaded into a BREEZE modeling application will carry over to BREEZE 3D Analyst.

One 3D Analyst, Many Models

BREEZE 3D Analyst can read numerous data types: model results from AERMOD, ISC, CALPUFF, and BREEZE Incident Analyst (toxic, fire, and explosion models), .DEM-format terrain data, and CALMET meteorological data files.

Easily access 3D Analyst from BREEZE AERMOD with just one click.

Easily access 3D Analyst from BREEZE Incident Analyst with just one click.

With options including 2-D and 3-D contour plots, charts, and export of results to Google Earth and GIS software, BREEZE 3D Analyst’s graphical results give your data clarity and power.

Graphical Results in Many Forms

BREEZE 3D Analyst provides many ways to graphically display results. Create 2D or 3D plots (all overlaid on your map images and/or terrain data), pie charts showing which sources contribute the most to high concentrations, and animations showing how a plume evolves over time. Whatever your results, one of 3D Analyst’s many visualization options will help you better understand, explain, and summarize your findings. With its ability to plot 3D meteorological fields and wind vectors, 3D Analyst also makes it easier than ever to understand and evaluate meteorological data such as CALMET output.

Export Results Conveniently

BREEZE 3D Analyst results can be saved as an image or animation as well as exported to a number of external programs, including Google Earth (.kmz files), Surfer, GIS utilities (shapefiles), and scalable vector graphics (SVG) files. 3D Analyst works with the software you already use, allowing you to do more with your results.

Customize Everything

BREEZE 3D Analyst provides a wide range of customization options so that your figures will be as attractive as they are informative. Adjust the color scale and opacity of your result contours, increase the font size on your legend, add a scale bar, or pull in an extra background map to overlay your results on. Then save your color scale so you can use it on your next project.

In addition to its graphical capabilities, BREEZE 3D Analyst provides an array of powerful tools for post-processing data.

Extract the Critical Information

Need to know the 99th percentile concentration in your data, compute 6-hour rolling averages, or create a map showing where and how frequently a threshold value was exceeded? 3D Analyst can do all of this in a matter of seconds. Intuitive tools allow you to pull out exactly the information you need to understand the situation, comply with regulatory standards, and make the right decision.

Data Manipulation Makes Modeling Faster and Easier

Need to add a background concentration to all of your results, or multiply everything by a factor to test a new emissions scenario? A few clicks in 3D Analyst will save you from having to re-run your model, and you will immediately see your changes reflected in the graphs, maps, and animations produced by the program. 3D Analyst also makes it easy to combine data files. Whether you need to add together the results from six different sources, pull results from five years of modeling into one file, or calculate an emissions increment by subtracting one model run from another, 3D Analyst can do it in seconds.
