Re: CRAFT radar data (Korean & Japan)

NOTE: The craft mailing list is no longer active. The list archives are made available for historical reasons.

We're doing good, as near as I can tell, to get CONUS on the NEXRAD2 feed. We still don't see all DoD radars, nor all FAA radars.

Also, Hawaii isn't available. In order to see it all coming in on NEXRAD2, Kunsan, Camp Humphreys and Kadena would have to backhaul to someplace where they could be added to the Internet2 feed.

Further, with the network revamping NWS is doing, NWS HQ and NWS SRH will aggregate all Level II data via a private NWS network, and then make it available to the Top Tier providers (OU/iRaDS, Purdue, ERCC, UMD) who will then further distribute it to second tier sites (like TAMU) and private sector folks.

I guess the short form is, I doubt it's going to happen unless there's some negotiation to put the data on LDM on Internet2 via APAN, which would have to be mediated by DoD and the host countries.

That's my unofficial take on it.
