A 3-D visualization client allows users to inspect the temperature across the globe. By adjusting the slider and clicking on the retrieve button the slice at a certain position in time can be viewed. The particular advantage of such a viewer is that not the whole (large) cube needs to be transported over the networks, but only the selected slices (which usually are comparatively small). Only when the user selects another slicing position, and presses retrieve, new slices need to be fetched. This way, the user can inspect data with a much better interactive experience.
