MET Online Tutorial for METv3.0

MODE-Analysis Tool: Run

Next, run the MODE-Analysis tool on the command line using the following command:

    bin/mode_analysis \
    -lookin tutorial/out/mode \
    -bycase -fcst -single -simple

The MODE-Analysis output indicates that there are 4 matched forecast objects and 2 unmatched forecast objects consisting of 438 and 25 grid boxes, respectively. Now run a similar command for the observation objects:

    bin/mode_analysis \
    -lookin tutorial/out/mode \
    -bycase -obs -single -simple

The MODE-Analysis output indicates that there are 8 matched observation objects and 9 unmatched observation objects consisting of 478 and 182 grid boxes, respectively. Now run the following command:

    bin/mode_analysis \
    -lookin tutorial/out/mode \
    -bycase -single -simple

Here, the numbers of matched and unmatched forecast and observation objects are listed but their areas are summed together. Lastly, run the following summary job type and dump the MODE lines used to a file and the output of MODE-Analysis to a file:

    bin/mode_analysis \
    -lookin tutorial/out/mode \
    -summary -simple -pair \
    -column CENTROID_DIST -column ANGLE_DIFF -column AREA_RATIO -column INTEREST \
    -dump_row tutorial/out/mode_analysis/summary_job.dump \
    -out tutorial/out/mode_analysis/summary_job.out

For all of the pairs of simple objects in the output file (FNNN_ONNN), summary information is computed for the CENTROID_DIST, ANGLE_DIFF, AREA_RATIO, and total INTEREST columns.
