Does anyone know of a server with Wind profiler data (real time)?

You can get some in text format at:
http://profiler.noaa.gov/jsp/ProfileData.jsp

(Their homepage is:  http://profiler.noaa.gov/jsp/index.jsp)

It is "current" but I don't know if that classifies as "real time"...


Does anyone have visad software to access and decode that type data?

The above is in column-oriented text format, which with the appropriate two line header can be turned into a VisAD Data object using the TextAdapter.


Display it in a nice format?

Sky's the limit...
