Re: [conduit] NDFD Data


Not knowing the volume of data involved, but assuming it's manageable. I think 
for operational use, the best avenue would be to advocate for inclusion of all 
NDFD grids on the SBN/NOAAPORT. Then it would become a real-time, 
NOAA/NWS/NWSTG operationally  supported product.
