20050531:RADAR data NIDS



Hi Joseph,

There are many applications that can handle NIDS format, the one that the
case was designed for is GEMPAK, which is freely available here at
Unidata.

PLease see:

http://my.unidata.ucar.edu/content/software/gempak/index.html

There are many others, the data is in NIDS format...

Enjoy,

Jeff
