I have been pointed to visAD as a possible tool for the following problem:
I am trying to visualize NEXRAD radar data (several hours worth). I have
gridded the data using NCAR's SPRINT program. The gridded output is in
Second, I have aircraft data that I would like to overlay on the
radar data. The aircraft data (multiple parameters) are taken at 1
1) Is there an easy way to ingest cedric files into visAD?
2) Is it possible to string multiple volume scans together and animate
3) How do I handle the time variable for a file of gridded radar
data? Just let the time run for the duration of the volume scan (3-4
4) Is it possible to append another dataset that draws a line for the
aircraft position and then encodes a sampled parameter as say, the color
of the line = intensity of the parameter?
I appreciate any/all help!
