Tseries is a Meteorological timeseries viewer, developed at the Norwegian Meteorological Institute. The source code for Tseries is available as open source under the GPL license. Tseries is part of the Norwegian Meteorological Workstation and can be connected to Diana.



Tseries is able to read data from different sources. The diagram composition allows to combine sources from different files into one diagram.

  1. Preprocessed hdf4: This is the original datasource, based on a proprietary hdf4 format.
  2. ASCII
  3. WDB: WDB is an open source database system, developed at the Norwegian Meteorolocal Insitute as well. Tseries is able to request direct data interpolation from this database.
  4. http Tseries is able to read data from an URL interface, this is used to access observation data
  5. Fimex Tseries uses Fimex to interpolate data in fields.


Tseries displays diagrams by using openGL. Diagrams can be printed in postscript or simply exported into png. The Diagram style is defined by style files - Diagramstyles cannot be altered interactively. Tseries styles can be connected to several data-sources by the tsDiagrams.def file.


The Tseries user interface is presented in English, but since Tseries is using the Qt-linguist tool, other languages can be adapted easily. Other language packages are welcome contributions to the open-source project. Tseries already supports:

  • English
  • Norwegian (Nynorsk / Bokmål )
  • Swedish
  • German
  • French
