Unidata tools and data are used in a number of community member's web sites for scientific and research purposes. Periodically we highlight a different web site from a member university or institute that is using Unidata tools and data.
College of DuPage Next Generation Weather Lab (NEXLAB)

NEXLAB is a rich source of weather information for a wide range of users.

NEXLAB provides access to teaching materials for classes at the College of DuPage as well as forecasting tools and information used by students and a user group that includes faculty, K-12 educators, emergency managers, broadcast meteorologists, goverment officials, and military personnel.

Getting millions of hits per month, this site's impact is wide reaching. NEXLAB makes abundant use of Unidata's data streams via the IDD/LDM as well as two of Unidata's visualization and analysis packages--GEMPAK and McIDAS.
